Dear Leaders,

Our current system of electing State School Board members is not very transparent and doesn't give parents and the citizens of Utah the voice and information they need to make informed decisions when they go to vote.

By the time we as parents and citizens get to vote on a candidate, the Governor appoints a committee to weed out the candidates and then the Governor gives us two candidates to choose from.  This process doesn't hear the voice or concerns of the citizens of Utah.  

I support the changes listed in HB 228 and ask you to support it as well.

Thank you for your tireless service and for taking the time to listen.
