Newman Responds To Recent Editorial On School Board Elections

In response to the editorial by Wayne Howard titled “Commissioners Back Partisan School Board Elections” that ran February 12, 2021 Mr. Charles Newman writes….

One has only to look at recent action by the State Board of Education to understand how misguided the article titled "Commissioners Back Partisan School Board Elections" is. The mission of all political parties is to get their members elected. Non-partisan elections, not only take away the best guidance most voters have on the likely performance of elected candidates, but without a Primary, makes it likely candidates will be elected by a minority of voters. If you happen to be in a minority Party in the County, then it makes sense to support such an outcome, but pretending to support it for other reasons is either dishonest, contradictory to the idea of government by the people, or both.
