Jeffco School Board Recall Election In November Not A Sure Thing

DENVER, Colo. (CBS4)- An election to recall three Jefferson county school board members may not be part of the November ballot after all. That means the school district would have to pay $500,000 for a special election.

Secretary of State Wayne Williams sent a letter to Jefferson county's clerk on Thursday warning her to have a contingency plan.

Williams said, "You will need near-optimal circumstances to place both recall and coordinated (statewide) content on the same ballot and meet the ballot-mailing deadline for the (November) election."

The three board members have clashed with the teachers union since they were elected over, among other things pay-for-performance and a curriculum review some called censorship.
