Kevin Graham did the right thing last week by resigning from the Wichita school board, in the wake of his arrest for allegedly trying to cash two bad checks and the revelations of his long history of personal financial problems. He has yet to be charged with a crime related to the arrest, but as he said in his resignation letter, his legal woes had made his membership on the board “more distracting than beneficial.” With school boards being held ever more accountable by legislators and taxpayers for every public dollar they spend, the Wichita board could not afford to let its reputation get tangled up in Grahamâ€™s. Now, it can move on.
