Currently, the Wicomico County Democratic and Republican central committees submit names of candidates to the governor for review. The governor may then appoint any person he chooses — regardless of the names submitted by the committees.
Also there is no formal process for unaffiliated voters to submit names of candidates. There are more than 10,000 unaffiliated voters in Wicomico County. Of the seven members on the current school board, none are unaffiliated.
We have an opportunity to change this.
We Decide is a grass-roots organization made up of concerned citizens who believe a 100 percent elected school board would result in more accountability to citizens, parents and students of Wicomico County.
