School Board having hard time keeping 5 on the dais

Must Read

It seems the Arlington School Board can’t go 5-for-5 no matter how hard it tries.

The five-member body was down two members at its June 9 meeting, with chairman Barbara Kanninen away for what was described as a family emergency and board member Reid Goldstein out for unspecified reasons.

“So you’re stuck with me,” chuckled board member Cristina Diaz-Torres, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Kanninen.

The board, whose schedule of meetings is approved at the start of each fiscal year, has had a tough time gathering all five members on the dais at one time in recent months.

Goldstein frequently has been absent, and at the May 26 meeting Priddy was gone. (On May 26, Diaz-Torres was not attending in person but did participate remotely from Puerto Rico, Kanninen said at the start of that meeting.)
