STATE BOARD OF ED CANDIDATE
HOLDS ESU WONKS' FEET TO THE FIRE
Ooh, good job by Lincoln area businessman Alan Jacobsen, an Educational Service Unit #6 board officer who's running for the Nebraska State Board of Education against incumbent Patricia Timm.
The North Platte Telegraph picked up his contention that the statewide Educational Service Unit Administrators' Association should be subject to Nebraska's open meetings law. Jacobsen contended that the group is administering the expenditure of taxpayer dollars through an interlocal agreement of Nebraska's 19 ESU's, but is not posting agendas or allowing the press and the public to attend meetings.
The Nebraska Attorney General's Office is investigating.
Jacobsen's stands on ed issues are excellent. See them on the voters' guide website, www.votyerinformation.org/vg-home.html?main=race_info.html&ride=race_list.html
