SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Two current and former members of the Santa Fe Community College board contend that three other board members violated the state’s open meetings law.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (http://bit.ly/1foITBU ) reports that the allegations are contained in a Dec. 27 letter in which the two members asked the state Attorney General's Office to investigate. One of those members has resigned in protest.

Their letter contends there wasn’t a public vote to put Ana “Cha” Guzman on leave and that the other board members apparently consulted privately on a temporary replacement.

Guzman was fired Dec. 2 on a 3-2 vote.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's Office declined to say whether it is conducting an investigation.

College spokeswoman Janet Wise says the college’s board complies with the state Open Meetings Act.
