Whatever happened after the board's discussion of getting a Parliamentarian?
When the Chair calls for a Motion, why do all the board members sit there as if they have been struck dumb?
Why does the Chair then have to make the Motion?
And why isn't there a quick Second?
Does the Board have any idea how hard it is making it to attract a new superintendent? He (or she) will be watching board meetings and just shaking his head. Who will want to walk into such a snake pit?
Was there a problem tonight with the Agenda for the executive session? Item 4.6 was "A Contractual Matter Regarding the Leasing and Purchasing of Properties."
When it was time to vote during the public session, the Motion was explained as Due Diligence, not a contract.
Trustee Scott said she was not going to support the Motion (and she didn't). I didn't understand her comment about not wanting to saddle a new superintendent with something decided on by the board before he was hired. She was apparently thinking of the actions of the previous board majority to hamstring the new board with travel and training restrictions.
A board decision on property leasing or purchase is different. The superintendent is to carry out the decisions of the board. He'll do what he is told.
