SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Community College's president has been fired, and her lawyers say she'll sue.

The governing board voted 3-2 Monday night to oust Ana "Cha" Guzman from her $180,000-a-year position.

The board's vote lineup was the same as the one that voted last month to put Guzman on leave.

The board didn't state specific grounds for firing Guzman, but one board member who voted to fire her said the college is divided and needs to move forward.

Another said Guzman needs to go to uphold the college's reputation.

Guzman's attorney Timothy White says he believes the board fired Guzman because she was trying to clean up the college's finances.

Guzman was hired in 2012 with a contract scheduled to end in 2016.
