We, the undersigned, support the establishment of non-partisan school board elections in Forsyth County. We petition the local delegation of the North Carolina General Assembly to work with the Forsyth County Board of Education to introduce and support a local bill to establish non-partisan school board elections.
We believe non-partisan elections will serve the best interests of children, attract better candidates and create more informed voters.
