The Traverse City School Board recall efforts against President Sue Kelly, Treasurer Matt Anderson and Secretary Pamela G. Forton may fail in part due to the coronavirus lock down. Petitioners need to collect 11,700 signatures by July 31. The signatures need to be in person and witnessed, which may be impossible under current conditions.
The recall is over the resignation by mutual agreement of the superintendent for reasons that are unclear.
The recall has faced numerous twists, including a big decision by an appellate court that allowed the recall to go forward over grace period questions.
