In a final parting act, the Republican majority passed a trans sports ban and gave the superintendent, who announced his resignation immediately after the election, an unprecedented $700k severance.
Wow. Republican corruption. Color me surprised.
I hope the very FIRST thing the new board does is undo this cruelty.
They don’t even hide their corruption. That’s what they do now, they steal things on the way out after losing an election. Just like January 6
The voice and words of that young woman. Wow. Just wow.
I grew up and lived many years in bucks county. My parents and my brother and his family are there.
Central bucks is rich, white and conservative. ( I grew in lower bucks which has a much different vibe) I’m glad to see what went down in the school board election and I’m also sad and furious on lilys bejekf.
The young people will remember this cruelty.
Proud of the students and families. Thank you for your consistent and eloquent reporting Erin.
Thanks for highlighting this Erin, and for posting that speech. Amazing fire, confidence and passion from a teenager - we have a future leader there! Well done Lily - give 'em Hell. And clearly, there's a lawsuit around that 700K - out and out corruption
Sadly, these school board members and superintendent have exhibited the exact opposite of what would be. They showed hate, bias, intolerance and closed minds. Additionally they showed contempt for the community that voted them out and remarkable arrogance in passing the sports trans ban and giving an outrageous amount of money to someone who has been harmful to the entire community.
Thank you, Erin. I'm actually surprised these people, who live in this community, could actually be that brazen and stupid. They are clearly giving the middle finger to everyone. Can't wait to see the results of the lawsuit which will be raised regarding the 700K. What they have done is another data point in the bad faith of these terrorists.
I was listening to the LotR soundtrack while watching and her speech pairs well with The Treason of Isengard
Meanwhile teachers are homeless and begging for school supplies with their underfunded salaries and exorbitant work loads already. How many salaries were or will be cut for some schmuck to go buy a slave? Let’s be honest and call these arrogant white fascists who they are.
Wouldn’t be surprised if $700k of Pennsylvania taxpayer money purchases an estate and “indentured servants” in the Caribbean. Considering this is a MAGA man, his workers probably come from a Trump ran black site for purchasing people on the dark web. It’s called Mar-A-Lago and that’s why he inflated the assets...human trafficking...
Just a working theory
