PA School Board Member to Resign After Refusing to Vote for ‘the Only Cis White Male’ for District President
“I feel that electing the only cis White male on this board, president of this district, sends the wrong message to our community: a message that is contrary to what we as a board have been trying to accomplish.”
A school board member in Upper Moreland School District in Pennsylvania has resigned after saying she wouldn’t vote for the only ‘cis white male’ on the board for district president.
She prefaced her comment by saying the man would make an ‘excellent’ president, but that choosing him would send the wrong message.

Pennsylvania school board member to resign over statement rejecting ‘cis White male’ for president
A Pennsylvania school board member who refused to vote for “the only cis White male” on the board to serve as president has decided to resign from her position at the start of 2023.
Upper Moreland School District board member Jennifer Solot made the comments during an open school board meeting on Dec. 6, just before a vote was held to appoint a new board president.
Solot led the motions as acting president during the board’s reorganization meeting. Two names were up for the seat of president: April Stainback and Greg D’Elia.
“I believe that Mr. D’Elia would make an excellent president,” she said. “However, I feel that electing the only cis White male on this board, president of this district, sends the wrong message to our community: a message that is contrary to what we as a board have been trying to accomplish.”

So to recap, the candidate is qualified and would do a good job, but he is the wrong color and gender. We used to call that open discrimination in this country.
This is what happens when schools become infected with Critical Race Theory, social justice, gender theory and other forms of progressive ideology. It is in fact, the opposite of progress.
The superintendent released a statement (from the FOX report linked above):
On Monday, Upper Moreland School District Superintendent Dr. Susan Elliott issued a statement on Solot’s comments.
“As a result of this incident, Ms. Solot has decided to resign from the board effective January 2, 2023,” Elliott said. “She wishes to apologize for her poorly chosen words and does not want to be a distraction from the great things happening in our schools on a daily basis. The district thanks Ms. Solot for her five years of service to the Upper Moreland community as a board member.”
The left is taking America backwards and calling it progress, and they can’t even see it.
