GLIDE, Ore. - A group that wants to recall four school board members in Glide filed papers with the Douglas County Elections Office Tuesday.

Now that elections officials have approved the paperwork, the petitioners can begin gathering signatures.

The group wants to recall board members Tom Hatfield, Blair Nash, Tom Tipton and Stan Spencer after the Glide schools superintendent reassigned high school principal Pam Maurice to the Glide Middle School. Dozens of people showed up at the last few board meetings to protest that move.
The board went ahead and approved the changes recommended by the superintendent. Now the recall peitioners are calling for the recall of four of the five members of the board.
The only member of the board not named in the recall is Ed Balfour, who voted against the recommendation.   
To get the recall on the ballot, the group needs to gather 420 verified signatures of voters in the Glide School District by Aug. 23.
