Drive to recall three of the "most destructive" Washoe school trustees begins

The following just went out, and although recalls are tough to accomplish and exceedingly rare in Nevada, with many business and elected doyens behind this, it could get interesting.

(Leslie Mix is the head of the Hispanic chamber, and this is being forwarded around by Jesse Gutierrez, who -- wait for it -- is the husband of Trustee Estela Gutierrez.)

Subject:  Washoe County Board of Trustees Recall Campaign
As most of you know, Washoe County School District Superintendent Pedro Martinez was fired (now on administrative leave) by the Board of Trustees.  The act was done behind closed doors in violation of the Nevada Open Meeting Law. The grounds for his termination, false representation of CPA credentials, were fabricated and inaccurate.  First Lady Kathleen Sandoval, Reno Mayor Bob Cashell, District Attorney Dick Gammick, Truckee Meadows Community College President Maria Sheehan, Developer Perry Di Loreto and many other have voiced their strong opposition to the Trustees’ action.  A group of prominent, concerned citizens is banding together to mount a recall effort to replace three of the seven most destructive trustees:  Dave Aiazzi, Howard Rosenberg and Lisa Ruggerio.  The process requires that we gather the signatures of 25 percent of the registered voters, who voted in the 2012 election, when each was elected.
We are in the formative stages of creating an organization and campaign, but are moving swiftly and wish to gauge public support and ensure that everyone of the hundreds of individuals who have expressed interest in this effort, gets a chance to participate.  Please fill out the following questionnaire.  We will be compiling a master list so that all can receive communication and assignments quickly.  
_____ I am interested in receiving communication regarding the WCSD Board of Trustees Recall Effort
____  I am willing to volunteer ie collect signatures
____  I can provide financial assistance
Please forward this to your friends and family.  We will be in touch within the next few days with updates.
Thank you for believing in our community and the 63,000 students in the Washoe County School District.
