She served eight years on the State Board of Education and she is now a member of the State Board of Regents. Teresa Theurer is also now an official candidate for State Representative in District 4. District 4 is the seat fellow Republican Fred Hunsaker is leaving and two others, Republican David Butterfield and Democrat Gilberto Urroz, have also filed to fill.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Theurer said if elected she wants to be the kind of representative her constituents can talk to and feel good about bringing a bill to her they want sponsored. She disagreed with one bill, in particular, passed by the legislature during its recent session. Theurer says it kept the Board of Regents from doing its job, and that is approving programs.”If I would have been on the legislature then, I would have voted against that bill,” Theurer said. “I really feel that the legislature should do their job. I believe that the Board of Regents should do their job. The State Board of Education should do their job. “I feel better knowing that everybody’s doing what they should be doing, the same as I feel about states’ rights. I believe that the states should be able to do what they should be doing, the federal government should do what they should do but not infringing on the rights of states.”Because District 4 covers both the east part of Logan and some of Rich County, it is the state rather than the county Republican convention where it is determined whether Theurer and Butterfield will be involved in a primary election.
