Dear West Hempstead Residents,
In response to about my alleged ethical violation of my obligations as a board member, I have requested the opinion of our school board attorney to be released.
Those of you that were present at the Board meeting on June 19 heard that the attorney stated that he had rendered a written opinion to the Board of Education on May 31 in regards to the matter of: Code of Ethics and Responsibilities for School Board Members. I asked the Board to waive the client/attorney privilege with regards to this matter at the Board meeting on June 26.
The Board voted by 5-2 to NOT release this memo. If my critics feel that they are right, they should ask the Board of Education why aren’t they releasing the legal opinion of their own attorney? I will leave it up to you to assume the response.
Cynthia Di Miceli
