New Mexico: Two Ruidoso Municipal School District Board members contest recall

The two Ruidoso Municipal School District Board members facing a recall are challenging the grounds of the recall. Petitioners need to show malfeasance in New Mexico.

In allowing the collection of signatures on recall petitions in June, Ritter pointed to the contentions of violation of the New Mexico Open Meetings Act when disciplinary action was taken against the school district's superintendent. The order also pointed to a quorum of the board outside of an official meeting. In addition, Ritter determined that Marshall, the school board's president, incurred substantial legal fees without first obtaining specific direction from the board.
