Pennsylvania school board member blasted for 'appalling' message to concerned parents

PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER TELLS PARENTS ‘I DON’T WORK FOR YOU’

“People are listening, they are watching, and they’re indignant about how their concerns are being dismissed, treated, and mocked,” Virginia resident Nicole Neily told Carley Shimkus. 

“We see over and over again school boards that are now restricting public comment because turns out they don’t like being criticized for their decisions that they have made unilaterally.” 

Richard Robinson, who is a school board member for the York Suburban School District, wrote the op-ed that garnered nationwide attention, in the York Dispatch explaining why he says he doesn’t work for parents. 

“It’s appalling that he said this,” Neily stated. “He is just the latest in a string of elected officials who have finally let the mask slip that this whole part of the… consent of the governed part is really just an inconvenience speed bump on their way to forcing their agenda down people’s throats.”
