A campaign to recall Santa Maria-Bonita School Board Member Will Smith failed to get enough signatures to get on a ballot.
According to recall organizers, they collected signatures from 4, 383 voters in the Santa Maria-Bonita district. They said they needed a minimum of 4,969 by 5 P.M. Monday.
School district officials said in the past that Smith disrupted school board meetings and police had been called multiple times. In response,Smith has said he was just trying to bring change to the district and speak out for what's right.
A Santa Maria teacher, Glenn Goldin, who was a leader of the recall movement, said Tuesday there are no immediate plans for another recall campaign.
Smith declined to comment Tuesday, other than to say, "the people have spoken."
