Recall Petition Filed Against Marion School Board Member

A recall petition has been filed against one of the Marion school board members.

The petition was filed against board member Linda Raymond.

It accuses Raymond of violating the Open Meetings Act, saying she recorded a closed session of a board meeting.

The petition must go through a hearing next week before signatures can be collected.

All the signatures must be collected by Aug. 3 for the recall to appear on the November ballot.

If not enough signatures are collected by then the recall would appear on the May 2019 ballot.
