Under public scrutiny, Lee’s Summit School Board votes to retain law firm | Education | Lee's Summit Journal



Board member Bill Baird was one of three board members to vote against continuing the business relationship with Guin Mundorf. Julie Doane and Phyllis Balagna were the others. Baird has publicly raised concerns about the board’s handling of the contract.
Several members of the public, including a state representative, told the school board they had concerns about McGehee’s relationship with Guin.
One person asked the board to discontinue its contract with the firm, while another commented that she thought both McGehee and board president Terri Harmon should resign for allowing the relationship to become the focal point of recent media reports.
Neither McGehee nor Harmon were available for comment after the meeting.
Rebecca Roeber, a Republican state representative for Missouri’s 34thdistrict, was one of several speakers to address the board. Roeber, a retired educator, cautioned the board about the appearance of a conflict of interest between Guin’s firm and her relationship with McGehee.
“I think Guin Mundorf should have been discontinued tonight,” Roeber said after the nearly two-hour meeting.
