Givens letter: West Ada trustees

I served as a Meridian School District Trustee for nine years. When I learned the recall was certified and there was a vacancy, I submitted an application to serve, as did others. The night of the interviews it was clear that the outstanding candidate was Stephen Purvis but he was totally ignored and a friend of the board members being recalled was appointed. The whole process was rigged and we were used as pawns in the Board’s little charade. The move also demonstrated the now board’s flagrant violation of the open meeting laws. Let’s see if this happens again on the 26th.
