|McDaniel to remain at BESE|
Tammie McDaniel, a member of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education who was asked to resign from the board by Gov. Bobby Jindal, says she's staying put.
Appointed to BESE by Jindal just months after the governor took office in January 2007, McDaniel was asked to relinquish her seat on the board about two weeks ago. Jindal did not give a clear reason for why he asked McDaniel to resign, other than saying that his appointees to state boards and commissions were expected to represent the administration's views.
McDaniel told The Ouachita Citizen Saturday that she and Jindal met late this week. McDaniel said the conversation was private.
"I am very grateful to the many people from around our state who have called and written to encourage me to continue in my service on the BESE," McDaniel said in a prepared statement she released to the media Saturday afternoon.
"I am committed to improving educational opportunities for our children and I believe I can work effectively to accomplish this goal," she said. "I will continue to serve."
McDaniel has been at odds with Paul Pastorek, superintendent of education in Louisiana, over her questioning of the Department of Education's expenditures, The Ouachita Citizen learned in speaking with individuals familiar with the situation.
McDaniel's repeated questioning of no-bid contracts the Department of Education awarded created tension at BESE, two sources familiar with the BESE told The Ouachita Citizen.
BESE oversees the department while the superintendent serves at the pleasure of BESE.
Some members of BESE are elected while others, such as McDaniel, are appointed by the governor.
