With all five seats up for grabs on the Nov. 5 ballot, 54% of 1,502 voters agreed that school board President Tim Braun should be recalled from office. Mary Bielz was the only candidate listed on the ballot to replace him.
Tana Rice, who was appointed to the board in July to replace another member who quit after also being targeted for recall, and Gari Lu Schwab, who was appointed to the board in May, will retain their seats.
The other two seats went to Bill Arrick, a recall proponent who served on the RE-1 board 2006-2010, and Connie Dodrill, director of Cripple Creek’s park and rec department. Arrick won by 25 votes.
