County Boards of Education

In 2024, several counties are electing members of their school boards. While these are all non-partisan elections (candidates’ names appear on both party’s ballots), at in at least one county, political clubs have recommended specific candidates. Furthermore, each candidate’s values direct their support for important school policies, so it is important to know their opinions and outlook. This year, elections for the Board of Education are more controversial due to a movement to censor books in many schools to prevent children from accessing information about LGBTQ, racial history or other topics.

To identify which candidates for these offices support our liberal religious values, it will be important for UUs to research each candidate's record and statements, and where possible contact them to ask specific questions about what educational policies they favor and the values that support them. UULM-MD is planning to outline these kinds of questions and invite anyone to help us do so by contacting the Democracy Task Force at Democracy@uulmmd.org.
