Opinion: Should IVGID chairman Smith resign?

Steve Pinkerton has been on the job about a year. There have been growing pains, but on the whole, Mr. Pinkerton is doing a good job.

I am convinced that staff morale would have been at an all time high if not for the constant meddling of IVGID Chairman Jim Smith. I do not think Mr. Smith understands his role as Chair of the Board of Trustees. The IVGID staff deserve our gratitude for their hard work and dedication under such trying circumstances.

Mr. Callicrate has been on the job a few months and the integrity accusations he makes are quite serious. He should offer proof of these accusations.

The size and timeliness of Board Packets are not the issue. I know for a fact that the prior Chair (Mr. Wolfe) received similar packets and read and researched every page of the packet regardless how late it arrived. That is what leaders do. They do not blame others but simply get the job done.

Perhaps the question to ask is whether Chairman Smith should resign and save this community the expense of a recall election.
