Who’s ready to term limit every School Board member in Florida?
Florida is, without question, THE term limits state. Our voters have limited the terms of our governor, attorney general, state legislators, county commissioners, city councilors and many other offices. But elected School Board members, who manage billions of your tax dollars, have always been able to evade term limits. With the exception of a single county, all 356 School Board members in Florida are allowed to serve for life.
That must be changed. Our School Boards should be run by citizen leaders, not career politicians.
Florida’s Constitutional Revision Commission is deciding whether to put a measure on the November 2018 ballot limiting all School Board members to two four-year terms in office (eight years total). This is the same term limit that applies to the president and countless other offices. We have to tell the Commission to put School Board term limits on the ballot.
