I think we should just let Senator Stephenson make the selection. Only he knows anything about education.

Keep in mind Senator Stephenson is still "paying back" Education for his humiliating vouchers loss. His efforts to privatize Education and reward his "donors" and allies with contracts will continue. You almost have to admire his perseverance.

Let's also not forget that Senator Stephenson is a sitting Senator and also the president of a lobbying group (Utah Taxpayer's Association). Who is he truly serving, his constituents or the people who his company lobbies for? I smell conflict of interest, but apparently the good people of Draper accept this conflict (or maybe it is simply because he has an (R) after his name).

If Stephenson is against the process, it might actually have merit.
