Please vote yes on SB 104, Education Elections and Reporting Amendments.
The current system for State School Board members is fundamentally flawed, placing the governor with almost complete control over the process and severely limited the influence of the voter. SB 104 would correct this and expose the candidates for this critical position, as well as the large county board candidates, to the deep scrutiny of the real election process. While some argue this would open up the school board to political influence, as the largest expenditure in the state, education is already highly political. This would merely remove that facade that exists in these races.
