Colorado: Over 37,000 signatures each handed in on Jeffco School Board recall

Tons of coverage out there on the recall of the conservative members of the Colorado Jeffco School Board district, Ken Witt, Julie Williams and John Newkirk, that have pushed to rewrite a US history course. The three were also accused of being dismissive of students and parents and overpaying the newly hired superintendent. The board members claim that the recall is over teacher salaries

Petitioners needed about 15,000 valids, they turned in about 36,000 to 37,000 for each member in 17 days. That is a lot over, and while Colorado has a history of tossing out signatures, that looks to be a safe amount.

I should have more on school board recalls soon.
