Pressure increases for Bridget Ziegler to resign from school board amid scandal

The attention surrounding the personal sex life of Sarasota County school board member Bridget Ziegler is now the basis of mounting pressure for her to quit her public life with the board. “I am not concerned with the salacious details of the Ziegler’s’ sexcapades,” said Tom Edwards, one of two Sarasota County School board members calling for Ziegler to step down from the role with the board. “My focus as an elected official overseeing student outcomes and academic achievement is to remove the distraction as quickly as possible and get back to the business at hand,” he said.
