The candidates
KENNETH CHADWICK, is an associate at Sandpiper Realty and a two-time campaign manager for state Rep. Nancy Argenziano. The Sarasota native got his start as an insurance salesman and founder of Manasota Life and Casualty, which he sold in 1965. He started a business in Tampa fitting patients with orthopedic devices, and, after selling that company, went on to become co-owner of Allied Medical Services, a health care company that provided nurses and medical equipment. He moved to Inverness in 1991 and sold his shares of Allied Medical to his partner two years later. He once served as vice president of TOO FAR, Taxpayers Outraged Organization For Accountable Representation. He is also a Republican state committeeman. He is married and has a son and two grandchildren.

The stars of support
Today, the Citrus County School District will honor the people who are the nuts and bolts of the school system: the ones who transport the children, cook for them, tend to their bumps and bruises; maintain their buildings, help their teachers, manage their educations; the ones who keep things running so the children can learn.
