A South Bend School Board member is speaking out on a move to censure him.

Vice President Bill Sniadecki said stripping him of his title is purely political.

Board President Roger Parent sent out a letter Wednesday calling for a special board meeting on November 9.

At the meeting, board members will vote on a resolution to censure Sniadecki and remove him from his position of leadership.

The 40 pages of evidence detail several incidents where Sniadecki allegedly violated the board's code of ethics or threatened corporation employees.

“Some things in there are true, that I get irritated every once in a while,” said Sniadecki. “I don't yell, I raise my voice, but I don't feel it's yelling.

“I never threatened anybody. I never thought I was in any way intimidating. I speak the truth. I guess if I got one fault, that's it.”

Roger Parent and board secretary Michelle Engel did ask Sniadecki to resign as vice president after he accused the board of acting illegally during an executive session in September.

Sniadecki refused to step down or apologize. Now the decision will be up to the board.
