We want to highlight what the article reports Board President and Accountability Committee Member Jennifer Burns said during the meeting:
"It's serious that the election commission error could have been prevented, and it could have been fixed, even if it had not been prevented," Burns said. "Along with the letter from our attorney, strongly suggesting that he check things, Dr. White was also notified by the Election Commission with the dates they had planned for publication. The error could have been caught at that time, too."
Also of significance is what Committe Member Patel said during the meeting:
"There's an issue of trust," Patel said. "We went down a road that could have been avoided. This is the biggest project the district has taken on. Whatever it is, we need to be sure it's done correctly."
We have now listened to the podcast of last night's meeting and can confirm what the Doings reported:
"Burns said the school board would discuss in closed session the personnel implications associated with the findings of the district's Board Referendum Review and Accountability Committee."
Per the article, when asked about the situation by the Doings Reporter, Dr. White had no comment.
All we will say for now about his silence is: Really?
For those of you who want to listen to the Podcast of the Accountability Committee, it can be accessed at the following link:
9/11/17 Bond Accountability Committe Meeting
In our opinion, this is one meeting worth listening to.
Time will tell if Dr. White is held accountable by the full BOE. We will be waiting, listening and watching to see what will happen next.
In the meantime, SOUND OFF!
