California: Atwater School Board Trustee kicked out in recall after already resigning
Atwater School Board Trustee Sheila Whitley, who resigned under fire on July 27, was formally kicked out in a recall this week, losing 154-23.
Whitley had voted to fire the School District Superintendent (a decision that was later reversed by the board). Her resignation came to late to cancel the recall. Turnout was 10 percent, and only 16 people came to the box (every one else voted by mail).
