By Wednesday, Gov. Charlie Crist's office had received 15 applications from people who wanted to replace Billy Morrison on the School Board and 27 applications from those who wanted for fill in for suspended commissioners Tony Parker and Sammy Yearty.

The applications are public record, and all 42 can be viewed from this Web page.

A spokesman for the governor said the vacancies could be filled within 30 days.

The School Board seat was vacated in November when Billy Morrison resigned after reaching a plea deal for an October indecent exposure charge. Whoever replaces him will be up for election during the 2010 election cycle. The job pays $26,317 a year.

The commission seats have been empty since Parker and Yearty were indicted in November by a federal jury on charges of conspiring and soliciting bribes.

Immediately after their arrests, Parker and Yearty were suspended from the $33,419-a-year positions. Those named to fill in for Yearty and Parker would be serving for unknown periods of time to be determined by how the criminal charges are resolved.
