Bottom Line:  Ms. DOW & Ms. STEINKAMP were "putting on an act" to the other Board Members.  They falsely inferred Bankston's hiring was
being deliberated when, in reality, he'd been hired 79 days prior to that meeting and had even invoiced and BEEN PAID for prior services.
Either there was a blatant violation of the State's Open Meetings Laws or there was misappropriation of funds on the parts of certain individuals.
Hopefully, we'll one day know which is the case!!
