    Hart District Superintendent Makes Statement On Election Changes

    Hart district Superintendent Rob Challinor sent a message to the Santa Clarita Valley on Thursday, saying while the district is changing to area-based elections, “It will not alter the way the district is governed.” Hart district officials decided to move to districts with a 4-1 vote July 16 because the change provided officials with a “safe harbor” from a potential lawsuit, said Hart district governing board President Steve Sturgeon. “The CVRA has promoted a great deal of legal action and policy discussion throughout the state,” Challinor said. “The Hart board took this proactive step to avoid a potential legal challenge and to honor the law’s intention, which is to ensure that minority groups are not denied the opportunity to elect candidates and/or pass measures of their choice.”
