A second recall effort involving school board member Dave Brown will conclude soon. A third recall effort involving County Commissioner Lindsay Berschauer will conclude in about two months.
The yard signs have gone up and canvassing began as both sides dig in for the contest about whether indoctrinating kids into critical theory and sexualizing them belongs in the teaching environment.
