Due to popular demand, I’m bringing this up for all of you to enjoy. The Register has a story up on what will be the first meeting of the Anaheim Union High School Board since Harald Martin has been appointed. Believe it or not, that will actually be tonight.
Already, Martin is on the defense. He claims that because his parents brought him here from Austria when he was two years old, that he can understand immigrants’ issues. He’s saying that people are misjudging him and his record. Oh yes, and he says he’s well-qualified to be on the board.
Nonsense. If all that is true, then why did try to force Mexico to “pay for the education of Mexican kids”. Why did he justify the sexual assault of a young girl? And why does he associate himself with such wacko anti-immigrant nutjobs like Barbara Coe? He wasn’t elected to the school board in the first place, so why should he be allowed to serve on the board at all?
If you’re in Anaheim and you care about the quality of the kids’ education in Anaheim, then you should go at 6:00 PM. Tell the other school board trustees why you are upset with their decision to appoint this crazy man to the board. And please, please let us know what happened afterward. We’ll do our best to follow this story here at The Liberal OC.
