Four County Council Members Endorse Elected School Board

The Capital reports that the County Council endorsed an elected school board:

"Four Anne Arundel County Councilmen have introduced a resolution endorsing an elected Board of Education.  The resolution supports a state Senate bill designed to put the county's education leaders on the ballot. School board members currently are appointed to their jobs, although they do stand for approval from county voters.  Republican Councilmen John Grasso, Dick Ladd, Derek Fink and Jerry Walker introduced the legislation at Tuesday night's council meeting. They are expected to vote for the measure at the council's March 7 meeting."
