New College Trustee Bill Introduced

The House State Affairs Committee has introduced a new version of Rep. Frank Henderson's bill to require community college trustees to run by district, rather than at large. Henderson said the new version corrects an error, plus makes a series of mostly minor changes requested by the College of Western Idaho. One more substantive change: Deleting a new requirement for community college trustees to file campaign finance reports. Henderson noted that legislation already has been introduced in the Senate to make that requirement, and it's moving forward separately. Henderson wants to make sure outlying areas of counties, not just population centers, are represented on community college boards/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Should trustee candidates for community college boards be required to file campaign finance reports?
