Linda Schaich & Peggy Martin on the tax increase Manatee School District is seeking

Linda Schaich is a community activist and watchdog who has been a fixture at Manatee School Board meetings for several years and twice ran for a seat on that board.

For nearly a decade Linda has attended and spoken at most school board meetings, workshops and audit committee meetings. She has served on four school district committees: Land and Facilities Committee, Sales Tax Committee, Budget Committee and Superintendent Search Committee.

When Schaich ran in 2012 against the incumbent, she said “the district was hiding deficits and was about to implode financially.” Just “six weeks later, the district imploded financially” as she had predicted.

For 20 years, Linda Schaich and her husband have owned and operated five equipment rental centers and two John Deere dealerships. She has been a Federally Licensed IRS Enrolled Agent, has forensic accounting experience and has taught school for the IRS at a local college.

Peggy Martin is also a community activist who has been a fixture at Manatee School Board meetings. She is also the newest member of the board of Tea Party Manatee. Stay tuned for more about Peggy!
