Next steps: Recall signs

Supporters of Mark Sutton made signs showing their likely next step in the reaction to his release.

Citizens who disagreed with the release of Mark Sutton from his position as Selma Unified’s superintendent say their focus now is following the legal process for a recall.

“I’m not alone. I started a petition and in 24 hours there were 177 signatures for you of people who do not agree with what’s going on,” said parent Melissa Childress during public comment session at the special Feb. 3 school board meeting. “I have no problem going through with the recall process. I will go door to door and get signatures because this is not right. It’s about the money and it’s about the schools.”

Childress was one of several who vowed to see a recall take place.
