Connie Bernard could be removed as school board liaison to BREC 

    Leaders for Baton Rouge’s parks and recreation system, BREC, will consider sending East Baton Rouge Parish School Board President Mike Gaudet a formal request to remove board member Connie Bernard as the school system’s appointed BREC liaison.

    Discussion about the request is set to take place when BREC leaders meet at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 25, WAFB-TV reports.  

    Bernard’s removal or continued appointment as the school board’s liaison falls under the discretion of Gaudet. The decision ultimately rests with him and the input of other school board members.

    The discussion is happening as Bernard faces an onslaught of scrutiny and calls for her resignation, spurred by her actions during a recent school board meeting.
