PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Rhode Island Board of Elections’ executive director has been suspended after he failed to sign up for management classes he was required to take in connection with a previous suspension.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1RPS0cO ) that Robert Kando was suspended for 30 business days after a board meeting on Wednesday intensified as members criticized his job performance.

When board member Stephen Erickson brought up a previously undisclosed directive given to Kando in 2013, it was just the latest of instances where members chastised the executive director. Erickson read a letter which stated that Kando was directed to produce reports on his legislative activities - something the board says he hasn’t wholeheartedly committed to.

A closed-door discussion of Kando’s performance culminated in his latest suspension.
