Dear Members of the House Education Committee:


I would like to ask you to please vote in favor of House Bill 228.  I feel that the people of Utah should have more of a voice in electing the state school board members, rather than relying on the governor to pick his favorites to be put on the ballot.  I feel the school board will have more accountability to the public if they are selected by the public to be put up for election.  We should be allowed to know the person’s party affiliation and political views, as in the case of other elected officials.  Please give the public their voice by voting in favor of this bill.


Thank you for your service.


Mary Holt
