An effort to recall Arsenio Cordova from his position on the Taos School Board began in May 2009. The effort failed due to an insufficient number of signatures.
Recall supporter arguments
The recall effort led by Citizens for Quality Education began after allegations that Cordova discriminated against school employees due to race or sex, created a hostile work environment and violated confidentiality of individual students. The group included former board candidate Jill Cline and board member Thomas Tafoya.

Organizers failed to submit sufficient petitions to force a recall vote against Cordova. He served the remainder of his single term, which concluded in March 2011.
