PALM DESERT — The College of the Desert Board of Trustees on Thursday appointed a subcommittee of Fred Jandt and Bonnie Stefan to review allegations against Trustee Rubén Pérez as part of an ethics probe.
The ethics probe is in response to written complaints against Trustee Pérez for College of the Desert’s Code of Ethics Standards of Practice.
Neither Perez nor any of the other trustees said a word.
Joel Kinnamon, who represents Trustee Area 4 on the College of the Desert Board of Trustees, has filed at least one of those complaints on behalf of district constituents and himself. He initiated the request for a censure process against Trustee Rubén Pérez for his violations that occurred on the board’s dais, and other more recent actions that he believes, violated board policies.
Kinnamon has not said what those “recent violations” might be.
