Onalaska School District Recalls Board Member


A western Wisconsin school district has recalled one of its school board members. Deanna Verdon defeated Onalaska school board member Jake Speed in a recall election.

Verdon received 1408 votes with Speed getting 95.

Those in support of the recall claimed Speed misused his office, made false claims, and acted with disrespect at board meetings.

According to Onalaska School District superintendent Fran Finco, a canvass of the results will be Monday and Verdon can be sworn in at any time afterwards.
