Republican Education Committee Member’s Daughter Named SBOE Vice-Chair

The State Board of Education elected Sarah O’Brien as the board’s first-ever vice chair.  O’Brien is a fourth grade teacher at River Birch Elementary School in Avon and a card carrying member (obviously not a proud member) of one of the state’s two large teacher unions.

What make this appointment even more controversial is the fact that Mrs. O’Brien is the daughter of state Rep. Bill Fine, R-Munster. Rep. Fine is a member of the House Education Committee which worked on SEA 1 during the legislative session and was a co-aurthor of the bill in the Indiana House.

It must be nice to have Daddy co-author a law that creates a new political position just for you?
