His opponent is an employee of Jordan District. School employees of both districts are ineligible to seek a seat on their own district’s board. Given that, why should we elect a teacher from another district to serve on the Canyons board? Ms. Arnold appears to be a good person with credentials qualifying her as a teacher and administrator.
