Douglas County school board recall efforts delayed for funding support

Posted

A political issue committee formed to recall the newly-elected Douglas County School Board directors will not be moving forward this November, citing the district’s plans to ask voters for a bond and mill levy override.

DougCo’s Future, the political issue committee, shared a news release saying plans to recall school board directors Mike Peterson, Becky Myers, Christy Williams and Kaylee Winegar would be delayed out of a desire to see the district be successful with its potential funding questions.

“A recall is coming. But because we are strong supporters of our school district and its funding needs, we do not want to take any action that might be perceived to negatively impact the November bond and mill levy override ballot measures.," the release said. “We will continue our work organizing and fundraising in order to support this recall, restore our school board, and protect the future for our students."

According to the release, DougCo’s Future was formed on July 11 and has received around 130 donations through the fundraising platform ActBlue. 

The recall website outlines the three main issues with the board directors as being a lack of transparency, concerns about a more conservative curriculum and failing to model good governance. 

Attempts by Colorado Community Media to contact DougCo’s Future by phone and email have gone unanswered.
