Tennessee: Signatures handed in against Jackson-Madison School Board Member

Petitioners have handed in 1189 signatures to force a recall of Jackson-Madison County School Board member Doris Black. They need 1151 (66% of the her vote total from the last election) -- they are still collecting signatures for a cushion. The recall effort seemed to be over her opposition to the Superintendent's 10-year plan, though there is now a different list of complaints.

 In addition to Black, Chairman Kevin Alexander and Janice Hampton were both facing recall efforts.

The recall is taking place just after Governor signed a law allowing recalls in the Madison County Board of Education members. There is no replacement race if Black is removed. It would be an appointment to fill the slot.
