Subject: Please pass HB 228 on education elections
Date: Mon Feb 24 04:52:02 MST 2014
Members of the House Education Committee,
Please vote to pass HB 228 on education elections out of committee. I am in support of this bill because saying we don’t want political parties to influence school board elections guarantees that special interest groups will have greater say.
Nobody studies the candidates for school board in elections because they are non-partisan. Making them partisan means hundreds of delegates will examine candidates closely and see who would do the best job from their party. This raises the quality of candidates making them go through a close examination within their political party.
Families are together forever.
