Idaho: Blackfoot school district trustee facing recall next week

Blackfoot School District Zone 1 trustee Peter Lipovac is facing a recall election on Aug. 28, due to his travel to New Mexico for a conference and his seeking disbursement without pre-approval.

Note the other issue at play -- charter schools: 
"Second, Mr. Lipovac has demonstrated at numerous school board meetings that he is not only advocating but is actively involved in the development of Chief Tahgee Elementary Academy, a Charter School in Fort Hall, Idaho," Kniffin writes. 
"By not excusing himself from the votes concerning Chief Tahgee Elementary Academy, he has demonstrated he cannot fairly represent the District in his actions as a board member."
