Del. Carr bill to fill BOE vacancies with Special Elections

The Montgomery County Delegation will hold hearings on the following bills on Friday.  Included in those bills are three that related to the Board of Education.  
  • Delegate Al Carr has introduced a bill to permit a Special Election to be held when a Board of Education seat is vacated. Under current law the sitting BOE members pick the replacement.  
  • Another bill has been introduced to give the Student member of the BOE more power.  This bill has been introduced in the past and to date has always failed.
  • A third bill has to do with putting BOE names on primary ballots even when those seats are not contested.  It appears that bill has not gotten very far in the legislative process.
