West Ada School Board Chairman Phillip Neuhoff resigned rather than face a recall vote. The previous Board Chairman, Ed Klopfenstein resigned in October. The recall was over the school shutdowns to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The focus is on the 6-12 grade students.
Board members Steve Smylie, Rene Ozuna and Amy Johnson, are all facing recall efforts
Idaho has a Queen of the Hill provision, so if the recall gets to the ballot, the vote must equal or top the number of votes that the board members got in the last election for the recall to succeed.
Four of them board members (all but Johnson), were originally appointed to the board after a 2016 recall led to the ouster of two members and the resignation of two others.
