ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Despite calls for her to resign, Albuquerque Public Schools board member Analee Maestas isn’t budding.
Wednesday evening, it was back to business as she attended a special board meeting.
Maestas is accused of stealing from a charter school she ran.
Earlier this week, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas demanded she resign from the board immediately saying she’s no longer qualified for her position.
Last month, State Auditor Tim Keller revealed Maestas and her daughter embezzled nearly $700,000 while running La Promesa Early Learning Center.
Maestas responded to his threat with her own letter saying she’s innocent.
