This evening, we received letters of resignation from State Board of Elections members David Black and Ken Raymond.
We appreciate their service to the State Board, particularly the knowledge and perspective they provided from their years of service as members of county boards of elections. Their resignation letters are attached.
The unanimous agreement of the five-member State Board regarding the proposed settlement came after counsel to all board members from agency attorneys and litigation counsel before and during last week’s closed session meeting. The agency’s legal staff, who are civil servants, provide thorough legal memos to the board prior to every board meeting and answer any questions board members have about matters that come before the board.
