Dear Representative,I strongly encourage you to pass HB 228 by Rep. Brian Greene on state board of education election reform. I support partisan elections because I believe the current system strongly favors candidates that are chosen by the teacher associations in the state. Although this can seem like a good thing on the surface, it amounts to the same thing as state employees choosing their own senators. It negates the benefits of checks and balances. Please vote in favor of this reform.
