Covert School Board President Bounced In Recall

The president of the Covert Public Schools board is gone. Voters overwhelmingly picked Valerie Bury over Diana Parrigin in a recall election yesterday. Bury picked up 195 votes compared to Parrigin’s 50. She was recalled due to arrest for marijuana possession last March. Parrigin refused calls for her resignation after the arrest became public, and the school board wasn’t able to approve a resolution which would have asked her to resign last spring.
