Issues involving treatment of VVBAC the last straw
Third District Representative to the College Governing Board, Al Filardo, resigned his seat on the Board yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, October 11, 2016). Filardo represents a large portion of the Verde Valley. Filardo indicated that the treatment afforded the Verde Valley Board Advisory Committee by the three-member Prescott majority, which suspended the Committee for a year last month, was a primary reason he could no longer sit on the Board. Filardo will provide an expanded view of his decision at the November 1, 2016 Board meeting in Sedona.
Filardo replaced Bob Oliphant in March, 2015. Oliphant, who served a year on the Board, had resigned in protest over the treatment of the Verde Valley by the three-member Prescott area controlling majority on the Board.
