A significant number of signatures against Board President Timothy Braun, Treasurer Dennis Jones and Secretary Tonya Martin were tossed out by the County Clerk. Petitioners needed 400 signatures by March 11. They handed in 444 for Braun, 435 for Jones and 423 for Martin. However, only 338 were valid for Braun. 303 for Martin and 328 for Jones. Petitioners have another 15 days to get more signatures.
The recall is over claims of violation of the open record act and possibly a suspension of the superintendent. One of the leader was a former Head Start director who lost to Jones by 30 votes in November 2017. A recall would cost about $8500.
