Alabama State Agrees to Postpone Board Meeting


By CBS-8 Reporter

A spokeswoman for Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says the Alabama State University Board of Trustees has agreed to postpone a meeting scheduled for Thursday to discuss suspended President Joseph Silver.

Press secretary Jennifer Ardis said she did not know the date for the new meeting.

An executive committee of the board placed Silver on administrative leave Monday after Silver tried to fire several administrators including executive vice president John Knight. Knight is a state representative from Montgomery.
