CENTRAL CITY, Neb. (AP) — Voters have recalled a longtime member of the Central City school board who participated in the firing of the high school football coach.
In Tuesday’s unofficial results, 666 people voted against Kent Malm, while 372 voted to retain him.
Malm had been on the school board for more than 25 years and had been re-elected in November 2012.
Kip Lenhart of Central City filed the paperwork for the recall drive. He said the effort wasn’t based solely on the April firing of Central City High School football coach Darin Garfield.
Officials have declined to say why Garfield was fired as football coach.
