    So how does a "Meet the Candidate" event highlight a favored candidate when all candidates are invited and come? Is the letter-writer saying she believes that meeting the candidates is a horrible way to decide whom we want to vote for?

    What part of the party platform is dangerous to know about an education leader? Much of it is irrelevant to the office, but none of it is dangerous to know.

    I have attended one of these events and the party leadership said nothing about which candidates they preferred. I am a Republican, but at the event I attended, I found two challengers to be utterly incompetent and the other to be preferred. So if that's how I, as a party member and delegate, saw the situation, how is that a partisan response?

    I think anyone who is horrified by voters knowing what candidates think is advocating a dangerous situation whereas partisanship is merely annoying.

    I believe the same thing is happening in Alpine District. We have some pretty extreme candidates running for School Board. Is there and "underground" movement being pushed by "the right?" They couldn't do it with a state wide voucher vote, so they are going underground? When and how should this be investigated? Is it time to involve UEA and UAA? I will not have some extremist represent myself and my children. Our public schools and district are too good to be turned into something similar to the Canyons District.

    So how do you hold them accountable?

    By not voting those in who have deliberately broken the rules.

    Yet, I'm not holding my breath that we'll see any of those folks actually held accountable for their dirty political games...
