Craven County Board of Education

Craven County Board of Education is beginning the process of redistricting for the future election of board members. The right-wing Carolina Coastal Taxpayer’s Association is lobbying for a change in the way board members are elected that would make the number of voters electing each board member smaller than the current election process.

Currently, each school district selects their candidate(s) of choice in a district primary. Then, in the general election, board members are elected by voters county wide. This system works very well. Voters in each district have a greater say in the primary in their choice of who is a good candidate to go on to the general election. Because candidates are then elected county wide, they understand that they represent and must work for the good of all families throughout the county.

The following is a link to a recent article in the Sun Journal. At the end of the article, there is an opportunity for voters to share their view points. This is an opportunity to make our voices heard.
