Walnut Creek, California. – The Contra Costa Republican Party is calling for the immediate resignation of Contra Costa County School Board member AnaMarie Avila Farias after her comments calling for a July 4 boycott drew national media attention this week.
The Contra Costa Republican Party has begun circulating a petition calling for his resignation, which can be found here: https://www.cocorepublicans.com/petitions
“This type of rhetoric is absolutely disgusting,” said Contra Costa Republican Party Chairman Matt Shupe. “The greatness of America is that people of all political persuasions, opinions, perspectives can have their voices heard and respected, and at the end of the day, we all love this country, no matter who is president or who leads Congress. .”
“The fact that Democrats in Contra Costa County are basically protesting this country, its foundation, its core, and not believing in it anymore, I think says more about their very twisted thinking and sad ideology at this point,” he said. Shupe said. “Most Americans don’t want that kind of rhetoric in our education system.”
Farias is not in contention until 2024. If Farias does not step down, this petition will be used as a gauge to assess the potential for a recall.
Farias is also an elected member of the Contra Costa County Democratic Party.
Three members of the San Francisco Board of Education were recently recalled for serving in similar positions.
