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.
