said no vote was taken to reinstate him and according to various sources he had consulted Potter should not be reinstated Kirk had abstained from voting in the last board meeting when Potter returned because he said he was concerned about whether the votes would be considered legal if ter voted President of the board Jim Middleton said it was not an issue He said he had asked for a legal opinion prior to the vote on whether or not a new board member would be appointed Superin tendent Major had confirmed at that meeting that if the board chose not to replace Potter he would remain a voting
