A Montgomery County, Virginia school board member stormed out of a recent board meeting after a parent used photos from the member’s personal Facebook page to illustrate her hypocrisy on masking.
“Senate bill 739, as you guys probably know, is going to be signed into law very soon, so we’re taking the power out of your hands and putting it back with the parents the way it should be,” the parent said during the meeting. “And it’s very concerning that you guys would take the power away from the parents.”
The parent took her concerns about incessant school mask mandates to the Montgomery County, Virginia school board, alleging hypocrisy from the board members and accusing them of an unwillingness to comply with recent executive orders.
“When you were saying, introducing the public address comment, you said this is the time we get to hear from the students, from the staff and from the community members. You didn’t mention parents. Not one bit,” she said.
“We sat here last year and listened to you guys preach about Gov. Northam’s executive orders and how we must follow them,” she said, adding, “Here’s a governor who comes into office, but yet you don’t want to follow his orders,” in reference to current Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s executive order abolishing school mask mandates across the state.
