Michael Law, a Kuna School Board member under fire for opposing a district levy that narrowly failed in March, said he will face a recall election rather than resign his office.
"They have to force me out," Law told the Idaho Statesman Tuesday.
Law was notified by e-mail Tuesday that opponents have collected enough signatures for a recall.
Terri Reno, a Kuna grandmother who led the petition drive, said Law did not represent her interests when he campaigned against the levy that failed by fewer than 100 votes out of 2,100 cast.
Supporters passed the two-year, $3.19 million-a-year levy in a second attempt on May 20 with 53 percent of the vote.
Law opposed that levy, too.
Kuna School District was not spending its money as efficiently as possible, Law said Tuesday. "That is why I spoke out against it."
The recall will include both Ada and Canyon counties because the zone from which Law was elected crosses the county line.
The recall is expected to be held on Aug. 26.
