Slatic Recall Deadline Passes With No Signatures Submitted



Share with friends

There will not be a recall election of Fresno Unified School District Trustee Terry Slatic.

A recall effort officially launched in January failed to turn in any signatures by the Tuesday deadline, according to Fresno County Clerk Brandi Orth.

The group, organized by community activist Stacy Williams, needed to turn in 7,338 signatures from residents in the Bullard High School region.

“It was always a nothing burger,” Slatic said Thursday. “But the takeaway is, whenever the legal system has scrutinized anything I’ve done, it’s always ‘you haven’t done anything wrong,’ ” Slatic said.

When contacted for comment, Williams hung up the phone.

Slatic has irked some residents for a series of incidents he was involved in at Bullard. His fellow school board members formally censured him in August 2019.

His seat comes up for election in November 2022.
