Vote to remove Cavazos as school board president tabled

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– The Clark County School Board meeting Thursday ended up going on for several hours as trustees voted on crucial motions. One major motion up for discussion was whether to remove Linda Cavazos as board president.

However, CCSD trustees voted 5-1 to table the discussion of her role as board president, meaning the original motion will not be voted on Thursday night to terminate Cavazos’s job as board president.

There is no future date to revisit this, but any board member who voted to table it has the ability to bring it up again. Cavazos, who voted no, joked she did not want to do that.

Conflict within the board was apparent during the meeting. At one point, Trustee Katie Williams and Trustee Linda Cavazos got into a heated exchange arguing about control of the room and Trustee Williams not wearing a mask.

Trustee Williams left before the meeting concluded, so the vote to table passed 5-1, with Cavazos voting no.
