After acrimonious meetings, local lawmaker says it's time for state to step in at Salem-Keizer School Board
Rep. Paul Evans, D-Monmouth, said he's concerned about the posture Satya Chandragiri, the school board chair, has taken toward the public. Evans is sponsoring legislation that would give state government a bigger say in the district. Chandragiri said there is a misunderstanding between the two and his changes are intended to facilitate dialogue.
