At this point, confidence in the Board has been weakened enough that no, we
should not just move on. The confidence issue needs to be addressed. There
are multiple ways of doing that. One is (far) more openness, as many others
have suggested. Another is to have an impartial investigation of the facts
in this case. The high trust of the community in James seems in start
contrast with the actions of the Board. Perhaps there was a good reason for
the Board to remove James, but the Board's handling of this situation
(particularly Jimmy's, which I think has been flatly unacceptable) leaves
much to be desired. The Board needs to think hard about, and take concrete
actions to improve, the community and staff confidence in its governance.
