Today on WWNC, Pete Kaliner was complaining about the Buncombe County School Board. Lisa Baldwin, who is the hero of many Lockers, has a reputation for asking questions. At meetings, she doesn’t pick her battles, but bombards the other board members with several motions that all die for lack of a second. With the recent election, a fellow partisan was elected who voters hoped would give Baldwin’s motions a second to open up discussions.
But no! According to Kaliner, the board bypassed Roberts’ Rules of Order to amend their bylaws such that a mere second to a motion is no longer sufficient to open a discussion.
