ELLICOTT SCHOOL DISTRICT RECALL PETITIONS DECISION ON PROTESTS
Friday, August 31, 2012 – Colorado Springs, CO – A Protest Hearing regarding the Recall Petitions for two Ellicott School District 22 Board members, MaryAnna Clemons and Ernest Hudson, was held on August 15. El Paso County Clerk & Recorder Wayne Williams has determined a ruling on the protests.
Three protests had been filed: MaryAnna Clemons and Ernest Hudson each filed a protest on their own behalf. Gary Dahn filed a protest in regard to both MaryAnna Clemons and Ernest Hudson.
Clerk Williams denied the protests filed by Gary Dahn and MaryAnna Clemons with regard to the Petition to Recall MaryAnna Clemons from the D-22 School District Board of Directors. The determination is that the MaryAnna Clemons Recall Petition has been found to be sufficient.
In the protest filed by Gary Dahn regarding the Recall Petition for Ernest Hudson, it was ruled that Mr. Dahn did not meet his burden to sustain his protest.
Clerk Williams did grant the protest filed by Ernest Hudson with regard to the Petition to Recall Ernest Hudson from the D-22 School District Board of Directors. The determination is that the Ernest Hudson Recall Petition has been found to be insufficient.
As a result of these protest rulings, there will be Recall Election held in conjunction with the General Election on November 6, 2012. The Recall Election will be for Ellicott School District 22 School Board member MaryAnna Clemons.
