Rep. Sanpei,

Please support HB 228 Utah State Board of Education Elections and Reporting Amendments.

My family and I want the facts about the party affiliations and educational philosophies of Utah State School Board candidates to be well-known before their elections. We believe that Utah voters should be able to vote for them in the same manner as we vote for other public servants.

The State School Board does in fact make decisions concerning the education of our children and the allocation of our taxes that we consider to be partisan and ideological, so their elections should also be partisan elections and they should be more directly accountable to the people who elect them.

Please vote in favor of it today so that the whole House of Representatives will be able to debate the bill and vote on it.

 

Thank you,

 

Kathy Erickson and family
