Letter: School board move on sales tax doesn’t add up

Let me get this straight.

The Beaufort County Board of Education’s legal representative advises that eight votes are required to ratify the money-sharing agreement with USCB and TCL on the proposed 1 percent educational sales tax referendum.

When the required eight votes come up one vote short, board leadership calls for a closed-door session under the guise of obtaining legal advice? What part of eight votes required confuses board chair Mary Cordray? Could Cordray’s position as budget director for USCB be clouding her judgment?
