Snake River trustee chairman Bill Martin stated that no personnel matter can be brought up in open session. "I will be more than happy to speak with individuals," he said. "Face-to-face is best or on the phone," said trustee Kent Miller. Trustees have authority only as a board. "If a person speaks with me, it gives them a chance to express their frustrations," said Martin. "The information I gain from listening to people, I share with the rest of the board members," he said.
