Recall effort doesn’t worry SM school board member

Will Smith

Santa Maria-Bonita School District board member Will Smith said Wednesday that he’s not worried about keeping his job, despite the recall movement that’s afoot.

Smith, who was elected to the five-member board in November 2010, said he has full confidence that he’s fulfilling his duties as a board member by raising valid issues about what he describes as excessive district spending, buildings that aren’t seismically sound and the need for a Spanish interpreter at board meetings to serve the district’s growing Hispanic population.

Smith’s remarks came the day after more than 50 district parents, staff members, teachers and other community members met in the Santa Maria Public Library’s Shepard Hall to rally support for recalling Smith, a former district teacher who resigned as part of a settlement with the district.
