SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Two current and former members of the Santa Fe Community College board contend that three other board members violated the state's open meetings law.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the allegations are contained in a Dec. 27 letter in which the two members asked the state Attorney General's Office to investigate. One of those members has resigned in protest.
Their letter contends there wasn't a public vote to put Ana "Cha" Guzman on leave and that the other board members apparently consulted privately on a temporary replacement.
Guzman was fired Dec. 2 on a 3-2 vote.
A spokesman for the Attorney General's Office declined to say whether it is conducting an investigation.
College spokeswoman Janet Wise says the college's board complies with the state Open Meetings Act.
