County sheriffs and school boards are almost entirely funded by county taxes. Why should Tallahassee have any ability whatsoever to override the will of the voters in those counties? If there needs to be an "out" clause in the event of some scandal arising between elections, give the governor the ability to call a special election. The governor overriding the will of the people to make his own politically-driven selections is completely antithetical to democracy. Not that Republicans have ever had a problem with undermining democracy if it means getting their way.
