So will the board do the right thing and appoint a board member in accordance to the make up of district since the district was created for a black to represent. Since Attorney Bryant is black then the appointment should go to a black candidate. But this 4 – 3 white majority board can’t figure that out. However Attorney Bryant did not participate in the voting process in June, so this actually makes the board a 4 – 2 majority white during the voting on a candidate to replace her.
So since the board ended with a tie during the June meeting, I have a question: “Can Attorney Bryant vote because I believe she removed herself during the time of the vote?”
It is a possibility that if Attorney Bryant voted and they voted along racial lines then the board chair could break the tie.
