The public expressed their frustration with what one speaker called “petty personal problems” on the Comal Independent School District board of trustees at Thursday night’s board meeting.
In response to a discussion on the appropriateness of Tom Potter returning as a voting board member speaker made it clear the board should be addressing educational issues rather than trying to shoot each other down.
Three people attending the meeting spoke on the issue. Scott Watson said the discussion was a “waste of tune” because it had been clear to him at th* board meeting that it was appropriate for Potter to resume his seat.

No vote was necessary and although none was taken the discussion on the subject involved nil the board members and Middleton said there was a consensus to advise Potter that he was still a board member.
He said when he did so Potter told him he had not decided whether he would return or when so Middleton had no prior knowledge of that, but it was completely legal for Poser to be on th* board. J*
All of them asked the board to stop waking time on such issues and get back to the real purpose of the board— to help educate the children in the district.
In other business, patron Gloria Herrera asked for an explanation of the resolution of the illegal dumpsite at Smithson Valley Middle School. Roy Linnartz responded that it had been cleaned up and both the county and the Texas Natural Resources and Conservation Commission were satisfied with the clean-up.
Superintendent Jerry Major’s contract was extended despite Kirk and Thomas Bruce’s objections. Kirk abstained and Bruce voted against the extension. They wanted the board to wait another six months before evaluating Major.
Kirk withdrew an agenda item calling for reorganization of the board officers.

Bill Smith told the board they should all go back and read the manuals on how resignations are handled — “it’s very dear.”
The Potter issue was raised by board member Douglas Kirk.
Kirk asked whether or not it was legal or ethical for Potter to return to the board. Kirk 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 Potter voted.
Presider* 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 Superintendent Major had confirmed at that meeting that if the board chose not to replace Potter he would remain a votingWinter Texan dinner aft Cross Lutheran
