continued Micheal Butler asked the board why they had not given the community a reason for allowing Richards to remain as superintendent.
“We’ve heard nothing from the school board about why you’re keeping him,” Butler said. “This silence is a toxic cloud that won’t go away. If this town is ready for a female mayor or supervisor, it is ready for a female school principal.”
Richards refused to comment on the statements made to him during the open comment period, but he said he feels the members of the community who spoke didn’t seek an alternative to his resignation.
“I think the community has made it very clear what they wanted tonight,” Richards said after the meeting.
