Effort to Recall TCAPS Board Members Continues, New Petitions Filed

New petitions have been filed in Grand Traverse County to recall two school board members.

On Monday, a judge threw out the petitions against TCAPS board members Matt Anderson and Pamela Forton, saying they were filed too early because the board members hadn’t been in office yet for a full year into their term.

The petition language was filed in the fall, but the TCAPS Transparency Group has now filed new petitions with the County Clerk.

They’ll start the process over again at a new hearing at the end of this month.

Meanwhile, a recall effort for TCAPS Board President Sue Kelly is still in limbo in Leelanau County.
