LBUSD Trustee Board President appointment is a majority decision, just like City Council’s appointment of Mayor

I have been reading with increasing dismay the letters and articles about who would be LBUSD Trustee Board President. It seems to me that Dee Perry not being chosen to be board chair has to do with her personal feelings and nothing to do with policy or students, which is the School Board’s charge. She is one member of a five member deliberative body that has the authority to choose whom they want to sit as President exactly like the Laguna Beach City Council. As I recall, when Councilmember Rollinger was not chosen to be Mayor no uprising occurred. Elected officials should be held to a higher standard of behavior and understand that they are simply one vote of five no matter what other words or initials come after their name.
