Kuna Voters Asked to Reconsider School Levy, Fate of Trustee

Posted By on Tue, Apr 1, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Soon after a two-year $6.3 million levy went down to a narrow defeat in Kuna on March 11, supporters of the levy decided they wanted another crack at trying to convince enough voters to approve the measure, which is designed to keep school staffing at current levels. The pro-levy advocates also decided that they wanted to oust one of the Kuna School District's trustees, who has become the most vocal opponent of the levy.

Trustee Michael Law even went as far as helping to create a brochure that went out to Kuna voters, urging their "no" vote. And when trustees took up the issue of putting another levy before voters, Law voted against the proposal on March 21. But enough trustees were in favor of returning to the voters in May to reconsider the levy.

And now a recall drive has begun to oust Law from his post as Kuna School Board trustee—he's still in his first term. Law insists he won't resign.
