Tourism board uses secret vote to oust director


Staff Writer

   The Grenada Tourism Board dismissed Executive Director Sandy Smith on Monday, but some close to the issue are crying foul.  
   “I served with Sandy on several projects, including the Balloons Over Grenada Festival, and I know her to be the utmost professional,” said  Tourism Board Member Jan Walton.
   Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce President Dolly Marascalco also spoke highly of Smith.
   “Sandy has been a great asset to tourism, and she’s worked well with everyone around her,” said Marascalco. “She’s been recognized on the state level for her accomplishments. I’m saddened by her dismissal.”
   Details of the vote, which was 3 to 2 to dismiss Smith, were not available, because, according to sources, it was done by secret ballot.
