Edit: She Didn’t Vote, Shouldn’t Run

Sherri Ybarra is principal at West Elementary School at Mountain Home. She's one of four relatively unknown candidates seeking the GOP nomination for state schools chief. And she has a problem. Ybarra didn't vote on the Luna Laws two years ago. How can someone who wants to lead Idaho schools have cared so little about what could have happened to them? Idaho Education News checked into the voting histories of Ybarra and her three GOP rivals -- Melba School District Superintendent Andy Grover, William Thomas Middle School Principal Randy Jensen of American Falls and Cottonwood School District music teacher John Eynon. The winner of that May 20 primary contest will face Democrat Jana Jones of Idaho Falls in November. Eynon, Grover and Jensen voted in the general election/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Is this a deal-breaker for you -- someone running for state superintendent of schools who didn't vote on Luna Laws two years ago?
