Summary:
Persons eligible for election to school board. Clarifies that deputies of constitutional officers may be elected to school board membership. Constitutional officers, as set forth in Article VII, 4 of the Virginia Constitution, include treasurer, sheriff, an attorney for the Commonwealth, a court clerk, and a commissioner of revenue elected in each county and city; this measure addresses the deputies of these officials. Section 22.1-30 currently prohibits the appointment, but not the election, of state and local governing officials, relatives of members of county governing bodies, and school board employees from school board membership; statutory exceptions permit the appointment of notaries public, medical examiners, public defenders, and certain other individuals. In addition, 15.1-50.4 includes a general prohibition against certain local officers holding more than one office; opinions of the Attorney General have previously extended this prohibition to deputies and have cited concerns under the Hatch Act (5 U.S.C. 1502(a)(3)) regarding employees and officials whose principal employment is federally financed.
