COLLEGE BOARD TRUSTEE COULD FACE CENSURE.
VALENCIA - College of the Canyons board members will consider censuring one of their own Wednesday for public and private disclosures of confidential information they contend he made, according to board papers.
A special meeting has been called to resolve the matter involving Trustee Ron Gillis, accused of speaking about confidential real estate negotiations both in an open meeting and with a candidate running for the college board.
``I cannot remember anything like this is the 16 years I've been here,'' said Sue Bozman, a College of the Canyons spokeswoman.
Board members will consider two actions. One move could involve censuring Gillis; another could be to direct the Public Integrity Division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office to conduct an investigation.
The resolution notes that prior to the board's meeting Wednesday, Gillis ``did disclose confidential information to another person'' and during the same meeting, Gillis ``did publicly disclose confidential information.''
Gillis, whose four-year term on the board expires in 2007, would not comment on the matter.
