Subject: Vote YES on HB-228 Utah State Board of Education Elections

Dear Representative Sanpei,
 
I am writing to ask that you vote "YES" on HB-228 so that Utah State School Board members will be elected by the people whom they represent in a partisan election process rather than being nominees appointed by the governor. The current system places too much control for education decisions in the hands of the governor and the committee which he appoints. As a Utah citizen and mother of four children, I think the School Board members should be accountable to the constituents they represent and should be elected by the people directly without first being appointed through the gubernatorial office. Thank you for your service.
 
Respectfully,
 
Cheryl Despain
