"They want their babysitters back," quipped a California school board member during a virtual meeting, referring to parents who are desperately trying to get their children back to school.
The recording was made of a closed-door virtual meeting of the Oakley, Calif. Elementary School Board. The board members appear to have been talking about letters and comments received from those in the community who have been advocating for schools in Oakley to reopen. The comments, based on the ensuing meeting, seems to have been very insistent.
"Just to encourage you," says board member Richie Masadas, in reference to those comments, "it's easy to hide behind a screen and put in comments, but when you're face to face with people, it's a whole different.... it's a whole different ballgame."
His colleague Kim Beede responded, regarding a specific comment, "Well, what's funny is that she's friends with people with whom I went to Title Star, and it wasn't posted on my social media, someone else posted it," she said, before asking "But, you know what.... are we alone?"
The Board of Trustees says that they are, so Beede continued: "Bi**h. If you're gonna call me out, I'm gonna f**k you up!" The board all laughed.
Board member Lisa Brizendine chimed in, saying "they forget that there's other people on the other side of those letters that they're writing. We're real community members, we have kids or have known kids who have gone to these schools. We have an invested interest in this process, and they don't know what we go through behind the scenes, and it's really unfortunate that they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back."
The board members on the call agreed with Brizendine, saying "right," and "I agree."
Masadas chimed in to say that parents who are home with their kids were big customers of his brother's marijuana delivery service, and again, the board laughed at those parents who wanted their kids back in school.
