A parent speaks from the heart and a Board President attacks her thinking her mike was turned off. She must have thought she was in Northern California.
There are calls for the Los Alamitos Unified School District Board of Education president to resign after she was captured on a “hot mic” uttering a disparaging comment against a parent at Tuesday’s board meeting.
Marlys Davidson has since issued an apology, noting that “when members of the public address the Board of Education, they must be heard with respect.”
“I reaffirm my commitment to serve our community with dignity and integrity, and I hope they will accept my sincere apology,” Davidson said. Lauren Roupoli, the parent who was insulted, said Davidson “needs to step down.” “After her true colors showed last night, there’s no taking that back,” Roupoli said.
She accused one board member of criticizing parents for voicing their legitimate concerns and drew applause when she said, “We are vocal because we are our children’s biggest advocates.”
Her comment apparently did not sit well with Marlys Davidson, the board’s president, who was picked up on a hot mic saying, “F— you,” during the applause.
Los Alamitos (CA) School Board President, Marlys Davidson, didn’t realize her mic was still on and said “F*** You” to a parent sharing their concerns about vaccine and mask mandates. @dbongino @seanhannity @JackPosobiec @DonaldJTrumpJr @IngrahamAngle pic.twitter.com/BFJnFZ5tvh
