MARIETTA - The Cobb County School Board has postponed its discussion about the possible censuring of board member David Banks to its Sept. 12 work session.
North Cobb School Board Member Kathleen Angelucci requested the censure issue be placed on Wednesday’s agenda for public discussion but asked that it be delayed until all board members are present. Lynnda Eagle, who represents northwest Cobb, is out of the country and did not attend the meeting today.
Angelucci’s request to add a discussion about censuring Banks to the Aug. 8 agenda came after she made a speech during the July 19 night meeting about how Banks admitted in his weekly newsletter called the Grapevine to contacting school district employees about one of his opponents in the July 31 primaries, has previously attended a school’s staff meeting uninvited, visited schools without 24-hour notice and printed “untruths” in the Grapevine about board members.
Alison Bartlett, who represents west-central Cobb, also spoke to Banks’ previous actions.
