Should state and local school board elections be partisan? That's a question that comes up on a regular basis and so far the Utah legislature has chosen to leave them open instead. At this weekend's Utah State Republican convention, however, a vote will be taken on whether or not the party should push for a change.

Tami Pyfer, who was a state school board member before becoming education advisor to Governor Gary Herbert, says she has always preferred non-partisan but she doesn't have a strong opinion.

"The issue of whether the local races and state races should be partisan or non partisan, the governor hasn't taken a position on that," Pyfer says. "It's a conversation that I hope people will study both sides of that issue and decide if whether they think that's good for the local community or not."

As for her new job as Governor Herbert's education advisor, Pyfer says it's exciting but challenging and very hard work.
