A Loudoun school board member facing a recall campaign led by a conservative parent group has resigned.
Beth Barts, who served as a representative of the Leesburg district, wrote in a Facebook post Friday that she made the decision after a lot of thought. She called it “the right decision for me and my family.”
She titled the post, “Taking back my life,” and added a red heart emoji.
Her resignation comes shortly before she was due to face a trial in the recall campaign against her, which is being led by Fight for Schools, a parent group known for its advocacy against Loudoun’s equity work and whose founder, Ian Prior, is a former Trump administration official.
Prior said in a statement Friday that Barts had “done the right thing,” but warned that his group will continue to target other board members. Fight for Schools is also seeking the recalls of Denise Corbo (At Large), Ian Serotkin (Blue Ridge), Vice Chair Atoosa Reaser (Algonkian) and Chair Brenda Sheridan (Sterling).
Well, it seems leftists do not care for the taste of their own medicine now does it? I mean how awful this schoolboard have been, right?
Barts is resigning as the Loudoun school system faces a major controversy over its handling of a student accused of two sexual assaults. Parents are upset that school officials apparently allowed the student, charged with forcible sodomy in the first alleged assault at one high school, to transfer to another Loudoun high school, where the second assault allegedly took place.
Oh yeah THAT BAD!
