Fed up with LAUSD’s continuing budget cuts, angry activists have launched the first phase of a campaign to recall school board member Nury Martinez.Martinez represents L.A. Unified schools from San Fernando to Sylmar, and parts of Pacoima.
The group’s grievances against Martinez include her support of plans to shut down adult education and occupational centers throughout the district. Critics also oppose her support for charter schools.
The opponents must have a formal petition approved and then get signatures from about 33,000 voters in Martinez’s district to force a recall election. She is the second LAUSD board member targeted by activists upset over the board’s budget cuts. A separate effort to recall school board president Monica Garcia was filed last month.
