7th District School Board representative Keith West called for a vote of no confidence in board chairman George Braxton last night, though West was the only yes vote on the 9 member board. “If we keep doing the same things, we’re going to end up with similar or worse results,” said West. [via]
From the RTD article:
The School Board cannot force the resignation of its chairman, but West said the board needed to consider a change “so that we don’t end up like the D.C. School Board or some other school board where the school board doesn’t have any authority.”
West first called for Braxton’s resignation last week, after the Virginia Supreme Court said it would not hear the board’s appeal of a lawsuit against Mayor L. Douglas Wilder and his administration, which West said was the last in a string of failures by Braxton.
