UPDATE: Boulder Weekly has withdrawn its endorsement for candidate Christie Adams in the Estes Park School District R-3: School Director at Large race.

BW received
an anonymous tip in the form of an online comment on our endorsements
stating that Adams did not have a Ph.D., as had been claimed.
BW contacted
Adams twice asking her to simply tell us which school had issued her
Ph.D. so that we could remove the anonymous post if it was inaccurate.
Adams refused to tell
BW where she had earned her Ph.D. We
informed her that we would have no choice but to withdraw our
endorsement if she couldn’t provide us with the name of the university
that issued her Ph.D. She still refused to answer and hung up on us.
