Two Oregon school board members survive recall

BAKER CITY, Ore. — Voters have decided not to oust two school board members who are in a struggle with a new member of the Baker School Board in eastern Oregon.

The Baker City Herald reported that Lynne Burroughs and Mark Henderson won recall elections Tuesday, Burroughs by 55 percent to 45 percent and Henderson by 57 percent to 43 percent.

In April, the two voted to censure 21-year-old board member Kyle Knight for disclosing confidential information. He was barred from committees dealing with the information.

He has filed a federal lawsuit against the district, superintendent and the two council members, alleging the officials have violated his free speech and other constitutional rights.
