GRAND RAPIDS — Last July, organizers turned in three signatures — all of which were declared invalid — in an attempt to recall a Grand Rapids Public Schools board member after he voted to privatize transportation and substitute teacher services, according to The Grand Rapids Press.

The effort needed 15,960 signatures in order to force a recall vote of David Allen.
