KILMARNOCK—A group of parents and community members have initiated two separate petitions to remove District 3 member and chairman Audrey Thomasson and District 2 member Kenya Moody from the Lancaster school board.

Parent Mary Posey of White Stone in District 3 formed a group who call themselves The Citizens in Support of Lancaster County Public Schools. Members include parents, community members and non-profit board members, she said.
