School board recall over alleged sunshine law violations still underway despite court challenges

The Gazette (Colorado Springs): Two targets of a school board recall effort in Cripple Creek-Victor School District RE-1 have resigned, and voters will decide in the Nov. 5 general election whether the third target, board President Timothy Braun, should keep his seat or be ousted.

Board Treasurer Dennis Jones and Secretary Tonya Martin vacated their seats in June after a legal appeal that sought to prove the recall claims against them were false.

Recall organizers, led by former district Head Start director Patty Waddle, allege multiple violations of Colorado open records and Sunshine laws, school board policies and resolutions.
