SB243 would allow the Governor to appoint school board members in Washoe County.
The Governor should not interfere with local issues.

Eliminating the election districts and using an at-large scheme does not provide a wide cross section of community representation.

Appointing School Board members by the three most populated Cities in the district provides the opportunity to adversely manipulate the outcome of education decisions.

The election of School Board members is best because it holds the members accountable to the people but appointing some School Board members by the County Commissioners is an interesting idea.

I believe the election and or appointment of School Board members should be uniform across the state so as to provide continuity and an understanding of the system as people move from one community to another.
