As a mother who had 6 children go through Utah’s public schools and currently has 16 grandchildren enrolled, I am greatly concerned with the effort to politicize school boards by changing to partisan elections. I can see nothing to be gained and much to be lost, such as shifting the emphasis from the real needs of our children to partisan politics, having the ultra conservative voice disproportionately represented, and discouraging true public servants from running because they don’t want to be beholden to political agendas. Please vote against the bill to create partisan school board elections.
