Petitions have been taken out against four Centinela Valley school board members, President Hugo Rojas, Gloria Ramos, Martiza Molina and Rocio Pizano, over their approval of a contract, now under criminal investigation, for the fired Superintendent that included a low-interest $910,000 loan and a perceived large compensation package. The article is a good read by the Daily Breeze's Rob Kuzina.
One of the leaders of the effort is a teacher. The district also accepted $800 a month stipends for car allowances and cell phone use -- the monthly salries were $1,040, five times the amount allowed.
Petitioners need about 8700 signatures (15% of registereds). There have been two recall attempts against board members, one in 1998, the other in 2004. Both failed.
