Recall vote May 4
AuGres voters to elect council members
On the ballot for the May 4 election will be the recall of three school board members — Brenda Golimbieski, Kim Koin and Gary McFarland. The recall petition required to put the recall on the ballot collected 2,810 valid signatures, which certified it to be put on the ballot.
Although several reasons were filed for the recall language, a hearing in October 2009 only approved the last statement, which was “Board of Education special meeting held Aug. 18, 2009 — a motion was made and passed, but was ignored and public comment was disallowed in violation of the Board’s Policies and Procedures.”
The AuGres city council will also be holding a non-contested election for positions on the council. Lavern Dittenber and Barbara Griffith are running for the two spots.
