(BLACKFOOT,ID) — A grassroots group of Blackfoot residents are seeking the recall of two District 55 school board members. The group known as “Concerned Citizens of District 55” is handing out petitions to support the removal of Trustee Jenny Hong and Chairman Scott Reese. Organizers say they want to send a clear message that they won’t tolerate the controversial $220,000 buyout for ex-Superintendent Scott Crane. The group isn’t seeking a recall for the three other trustees because they already face a scheduled reelection in May.
