Board President Ritchie Webb responded that Boyd's attitude was disrespectful and not constructive.

The BCCT summed up Louise's performance perfectly this morning. Clueless out of touch and offensive! William you were much too kind on Tuesday she splapped the students and taxpayers in the face as her crew gave her a standing ovation. Did you notice no one stood from NESPA.
