Orleans Parish School Board Member Seth Bloom Questions Contract Nullifications
Posted on Feb 21, 2013 in Local Issues
A surprise came Monday evening when Orleans Parish School Board President Ira Thomas added a measure to nullify contracts for members Stan Smith and Kathleen Padian, set for the Tuesday’s school board meeting. Many members were caught off guard by the move and Bloom, blocked Thomas’ motions at school board meeting. Seth Bloom, submitted a new motion to simply look at the contracts and add amendments if necessary, instead of Thomas’ more extreme measure of nullifying and then trying to re-negotiate. Bloom was backed by Koppel, Ellison, Marshall Jr., and Usdin; Thomas was the only opposed since Cade was not in town to vote.
