PRESS RELEASE: Mayor Stan Pulliam Statement on School Board Takeover Legislation
SANDY, OR—Today Mayor Stan Pulliam issued the following statement regarding Senate Bill 1521, which is advancing through the 2022 Legislative Session:
"Extreme progressives are trying to take over our schools through any means necessary," said Mayor Stan. "When parents beat them in school board elections, they pushed more extreme rules through the Governor's office. When they couldn't recall conservative school board members in Newberg, they introduced legislation to reduce the power of school boards to be little more than figureheads rubber stamping the decisions of bureaucrats. When will we learn to let parents have their rightful role in their children's education?"
Stan Pulliam is the two term, nonpartisan Mayor of Sandy.
He is running for governor in the 2022 election.
