Broward School Board Member Ann Murray (D-Resign) is getting another opponent for her District 1 seat. Theresa Moore, a supervisor in the school bus transportation department, filed for the seat late last week. Oh, Ann. The bus drivers really don’t like you.
Back in March 2012 the Sun-Sentinel wrote, “Theresa Moore, a supervisor in the department, said workers were excited to get new leadership. But she said the department has become ‘hostile and unhealthy.'”
Murray should have resigned two years ago after news of her bigoted behavior broke. Remember this plea from a Broward school student?
“As a young American who admires, embraces, and respects diversity, Im truly appalled by Broward County School Board Member Ann Murray’s recent bigotry in offending our African-American community, and most importantly Team Broward, which is made up of every single demographic present in Broward County Public Schools. As a high school Senior, I uniquely can say that I’m not relying solely on media accounts of Ann Murray’s irresponsibility, insensitivity, and unprofessional behavior. I’ve had my share of experiences with Ms. Murray; she never condemned or took action against a bus driver who ridiculed and bullied me simply because of my ethnicity. Instead, she spoke in favor of the gentleman at the School Board meeting where he was set to be fired, as per the recommendation of the SIU professional detective. Once again, she was never available in yet another bullying occasion, instead she offered her ever-so natural scoffish laugh.
Unfortunately, racism is present in society today, and to that effect, it is legal and in many cases tolerated, however that demographic of racists most always is a minority. Racism cannot be tolerated by a public elected official, nevertheless by a School Board Member of the 6th largest school district, representing one of the most diverse demographics in all of the U.S.
Although it may be hard for her, based on her character (or lack thereof) and her actions, Ann Murray must resign, in the best interest of the citizens of this great county, and most importantly the innocent 265,000 scholars that make up the Broward County Public School System.
I proudly join the many honorable patriots who have already taken a stand in demanding Ann Murray’s resignation: Broward GOP Chairman Richard DeNapoli, Bob Norman of The Daily Pulp blog, Red Broward blog, and many others.”
West park vice mayor Felicia Brunson previously announced her bid for the District one seat.
