164 School Board Seat Vacancies In Maricopa County Alone! 14 Positions with NO CANDIDATES!

[NOTE FROM EAN EDITOR: This is very important information, but don't be fooled by the tone of this statement from Covey. He is correct that there are many school board seats available and MUST be filled with REAL Republicans who respect the principles and platform of the Republican party and not just politicians with an "R" beside their names; who are a fraud.

Unfortunately, Covey is one such fraud. He is now pretending to be a REAL Republican because he is being challenged in the Primary. Don't be fooled. Vote for Jana Jackson for Maricopa County Superintendent of Schools. She walks the walk; not just talks the talk]

Maricopa County School Superintendent Dr. Don Covey - Current Governing Board Vacancies are an Opportunity for Republican Leadership: As of today, there are 164 Governing Board Seat Vacancies across Maricopa County’s 58 traditional school districts. Considering there are 277 total Governing Board seats, the 164 Vacancies represent a 60% vacancy rate! As of today, there are not enough Candidate Election Packets, requested from my office, to fill the needed Governing Board Vacancies. As a matter of fact no Candidate Election Packets (meaning no one is currently planning on running) have been pulled, for the 14 vacant seats in 9 school districts. I am very concerned about these statistics. However, as a Republican I see a terrific opportunity for our party. We have an opportunity to rise up Republican leaders by participating in the political process and positively impacting school districts. Although Governing Board positions are nonpartisan, Republican leaders can encourage enthusiastic, visionary party members to run for these offices, and to advocate for our Arizona Republican Principles, such as: “Taxes, Jobs, and our Economy, Law and Justice, Government Reform, Education, Families and Children, and International Affairs”, in their local school district. Serving as member of a local school board is one of the most rewarding job you may undertake. As an elected Governing Board Member, the decisions you make will affect all children, their parents, and the economic well-being of your community, and state. I encourage all Republican leaders to encourage their networks, as well as themselves, to consider running for a Governing Board Vacancy. Together, we can ensure all of our school districts have Republican leadership needed to ensure our students are prepared for college and/or a career. The filing period for nomination papers and petitions is July 11, 2016 through August 10, 2016. For more information, visit
