There has been some interesting developments in northwest Broward’s open School Board race.
Former County Commissioner Scott Cowan showed up at the Supervisor of Elections Office in downtown Fort Lauderdale and picked up the documents needed to open a campaign account in the race.
If the documents are returned to the supervisor’s office, it would allow a candidate to collect campaign donations and spend money.
Cowan told the staff that the documents were for “Lauren Book, according to a source.
Laruen’s married name is Lauren Book Lim.

Former commissioner Cowan works with lobbyist Ron Book, Lauren’s father.
Lauren Book, an advocate for abused children, has been mulling making the race.
And former School Board member Don Samuels, who lost the same District 4 seat to Stephanie Kraft 12 years ago, picked up the documents last week.
Kraft is not running again this year, leaving the seat open.
