Possible link between moving local elections to November and ALEC agenda to take assault on state government to the local level

We see a link between bills in the Kansas House and Senate to move local elections including school board elections to the fall and a new ALEC agenda to take their assault on state government to the local level. Kansans should not be makingĀ it easier for ALEC to manipulate state and local elections. “The extension of its techniques to city councils and municipalities across America offers Alec the chance to open up a potential source of funding that might help it solve its budgetary crisis. There are almost 500,000 local elected officials, many with considerable powers over schools and local services that could be attractive to big business.”http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/06/conservative-group-alec-city-local-government?CMP=twt_gu
