The recall campaign against West Bonner County School Board chairwoman Sandra Brower appears to have failed. Petitioners turned in 180 signatures, they needed 162 (50% of eligible voters) by Jan. 26. Only 139 were accepted (14 were from out of district, 11 were duplicate. No word on why the other 26 were rejected).
The issue was Brower's approval of pay raises for district teachers, a claim that she appointed a family member to the board (though Brower claims the person was not in her family), that meeting with district personnel over a levy was electioneering and a March 2013 drunk driving arrest.
