Some blowback about the Central City School Board recall. Petitioners targeted three school board members over the firing of a football coach. One of the recalls, against Kent Malm, made the ballot (set for January 14). Petitioners appeared to hand in enough signatures for the recall of two other members, Dale Palser and Steve Belitz, both the effort was thrown out because the petitions did not state on each page whether the petitioners were paid or volunteer.
Now, there is an investigation over whether the school board used public funds to defeat the recall attempt.
