Delegation requests Frametown P&R Board President be removed

The majority of last Friday’s regular meeting of the Braxton County Commission was devoted to hearing concerns of a delegation from Frametown and their efforts to revitalize the Frametown Community Center. Melody Kophfer, a member of the Board, spoke for the delegation along with Jennifer Butcher, also a member, and Harold Reip. The group requested that the Commission ask Tara Wilson, the Board President, to resign. Kophfer told of the many activities that were going on to revitalize the community center and accused Wilson of spending money and taking other actions without Board approval. After hearing the concerns, Melvin Gum made a motion to write a letter to Wilson requesting her resignation. Lisa Godwin made a second motion to re-advertise to fill the vacancy that currently exists on the Board. Board President George Skidmore told the delegation that the subject would be placed on the Commission’s next meeting agenda for possible additional action.
