No coincidence there. We have one Board member currently facing two felony counts. And another with a slightly less ugly record.

As I've always said, school Boards are a failed experiment in parental inclusion.

To be an elected official for a school board or any public agency one must be over 18 years of age and a registered voter. One cannot hold elected office and be a felon.
