Inweekly has heard a familiar face may return to Escambia County politics–Marie Young.

Escambia County School Board Member Linda Moultrie has announced that she is resigning, effective the end of October. Gov. Rick Scott will appoint her replacement.

Sources have shared that the governor’s office has contacted former County Commissioner Marie Young to see if she is interested. The only stipulation is that Young agrees to not seek election to the seat later.
