Voters in Jefferson County recalled their rightwing school board. Voters in Douglas County replaced their pro-voucher school board.
But voters in Denver gave “reformers” a sweeping victory. The new board will be 7-0 in support of Superintendent Tom Boasberg’s DFER agenda. Robert Speth, the challenger to board president Happy Haynes, lost by less than 1,000 votes. Haynes recently was appointed by the mayor as director of parks for the city. There will not be a single dissenting vote on the board.
