Would-be recall of school board over alleged sunshine law violations stalled by shortage of petition signatures

The Gazette: Insufficient valid signatures needed to initiate a recall election of three members of the Cripple Creek-Victor School District RE-1 Board of Education have sent former district employee Patty Waddle and her supporters back to the streets.

Waddle and others behind the “Erase the Board” movement submitted signatures March 11 of voters who want board President Tim Braun, Treasurer Dennis Jones and Secretary Tonya Martin ousted.

The petitioners claim “multiple violations of Colorado state statutes, school board policies and resolutions, Sunshine laws and the Colorado Open Records Act,” according to Waddle.

Targeted board members say they can prove the accusations are false statements perpetrated out of vindictiveness.
