Meet before taking seat?

PCHD director asks to meet recommended board appointee before voting on approval

(Continued)

“This is such an important position, I just feel like I would like to meet some of these candidates,” Bodiford said. “I think it’s only fair.”

Floyd suggested narrowing down the candidates to two or three and having them speak in front of the board, though at least one other board member indicated they did not want to do that.

“If they are going to be serving on a board and in the public eye, then they better start getting used to it,” Bodiford said.

Carter recommended that the board delay the appointment to give Bodiford an opportunity to meet Welsh.
