IMPERIAL -- Tempers flared during the regular Imperial Community College District board meeting Tuesday night over allegations the public was not allowed to comment during the virtual gathering.

The allegations were made by Imperial Community College District Board Trustee Annette Gonzalez-Buttner, who had earlier in the day issued a statement calling for Superintendent/President Martha Garcia to resign immediately after allegedly violating California state law in regard to open meeting statutes.
