Move to replace ousted trustee causes controversy

  • March 20, 2008

{mosimage}TORONTO - Toronto’s Catholic school board may or may not hold an election to replace a trustee accused of passing off personal spending as board expenses then turfed for failing to show up for four meetings in a row.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board voted 6-5 in favour of an election to replace Christine Nunziata as Ward 6 trustee, but then three trustees questioned the vote as soon as it was counted.

It would cost the board $180,000 to run an election, and Nunziata could run if she chose. There are three years remaining on the current board’s term office before elections are held again in November 2010.

The board will again debate appointing or electing Nunziata’s replacement March 26.
