The JEA Political Action Committee met on Tuesday. We have a great opportunity to add two new, education-friendly legislators to the Utah House of Representatives. Carl Wimmer has decided to run for Congress. That opens up his seat, which has included Herriman and Riverton. Because of the growth in this area of the state, Herriman and Riverton will each have their own representative. If you live in the Herriman or Riverton area, please think about friends and neighbors (or yourself) who have expressed interest in politics and education. Send me contact information. We need to recruit great candidates who are going to support public education.
In addition, four Jordan School Board terms are expiring: Rick Bojak, Leah Voorhies, Carmen, Freeman, and Richard Osborn. I have not heard definitively if any of them are going to run for re-election.
