A BOE member is a thankless job, which is why many shy away from it, but I always find any election where a candidate runs unopposed to be totally against what the system should be. But that occurs in many other elected positions as well. The issue is: are they doing their fiduciary duties properly for the taxpayers? In the case of the FRHSD it is sometimes debatable. They lost a referendum last year and have now decided to pit towns against each other by splitting that one referendum into three, each of which affects a different portion of this huge district. I am assuming they hope that they will all pass by the voters who will think that they will miss out if they reject it while other sections pass theirs. The only thing the voters should remember is this is just the same as last year's referendum that was rejected and that if even one passes, we ALL will be responsible to cover it. That's the issue in being such a large regional district.
