Subject: Please Pass Bill HB 228 on Education Elections
Date: Mon Feb 24 05:07:08 MST 2014
I ask that you vote to pass HB 228 on education elections out of committee. I support this bill because the vetting process of running through a convention race helps weed out unqualified candidates, but does so in a grassroots way.
As a parent with school age children, I would like the opportunity to research candidates for the Utah State Board of Education and vote for whom I feel represents my values. I pay close to $700 dollars a year out of my property taxes to the education fund. As I tax payer, I feel it is only right that I know who the people are representing and making choices for my children.
Please pass HB 228 out of committee.
