Christie: Bullet Points Aren’t Discussion

Christie Wood (re: Frank: I did too contact NIC): Frank (Henderson) and I have a different defintion of what is a discussion. I made my post on Wed. during the day responding to the on-line story. John told the Board that night at the board meeting that he had been provided with some bullet points he would share with us. I am not sure who he got them from, but bullet points are not my idea of a conversation. It is a good starting point though. The media in southern Idaho had already done a story on his ideas before our board was aware of his proposal. I would have preferred Frank mentioned his ideas to us at the legislative reception we hosted for our local legislators in November. That was the perfect opportunity to tell us his thoughts and obtain feedback. Nevertheless we will study his proposal and provide him with our thoughts and input. I will be in Boise later this week and hope to run into him to discuss this further. (See: Henderson's bill would create trustee districts)

Question: Should Rep. Frank Henderson move ahead with his proposal to split college districts into subdistricts without a long conversation with the North Idaho College Board of Trustees?
