Boise woman: Recall Luna
A retired secretary who worked at Mountain Home Air Force Base for 22 years is attempting to fly an idea that has never succeeded in Idaho history. Nancy Berto, is hoping to recall Idaho Superintendent Tom Luna. Berto has attended protests against Luna’s three big education reform bills with “Stop the Lunacy” and “Save Our Schools” signs. Despite overwhelming public testimony against the plan backed by Luna and GOP Governor Butch Otter, the plan is making it’s way through the legislature. The 66 year old Boise woman disputes Luna’s claim of a mandate for change — including larger class sizes, required online classes and a computer for every high school student — because neither he nor Otter mentioned the ideas in the 2010 campaign. According to the Idaho Statesman Berto plans to begin gathering signatures April 16. Recall proponents must wait until Luna has served 90 days of his second term before they can begin collecting signatures. They then will have 75 days to finish the job.
