    Ok - I'm sworn in and this is the second time in my life I've raised my right hand to promise to defend the Constitution of the United States

    So if you have some notion to like rip up the Constitution or burn it or something and I'm around I'm bound to try to stop you.

    I'm leading with my right and then faking left, so be prepared!

    I believe only partisan voting is taboo. I dont even think you have to ask the elders for "council" on non partisan politics, but like all things your local elder body decides how far to pry into your life. The bigger problem is their is no watchtower approved defense yet for individuals in the cong stumbling people ( Jesus says otherwise, and they allows themselves to stumble people with out reprisal). So the elders can say while there is nothing wrong with being on the school board or voting on it because they have complaints about people being stumbled by your position you should (ie have to or be stripped of "priviledges") step down.
