PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
The assembly pledged their allegiance to the United States of America led by Governing Board Member Scott Crowley.
The following citizens came forward:
Marlena Machol referenced her remarks to the comments made by Governing Board Member Jerry Walker. She commented that students attend college to get an education and that it irritated him that they refused to hide in shame because he didn’t like who they are and that he disapproved of their lifestyle, but part of their lifestyle was to attend college and pay good money to do so which she assumed paid his salary. She stated that one of many benefits of college is that students get exposed to many kinds of people. She and her husband did not send their gay son to college to be exposed to that kind of hatred and did not send their straight kids to college to learn prejudice. It was more appropriate for those kids to be on the college campus with their rainbow flag than for Mr. Walker to be there with his gods of prejudice and guardians of hatred. He is not the first bigot to try and block the schoolhouse door and won’t be the last but never should people let it be okay. She stated shame on him to want such prejudice to be a part of our schools.
Reverent Brad Wishon, Pastor of Gentle Shepherd Metropolitan Community Church, a church that draws members from all across Maricopa County and primarily most members of gay, lesbian, transsexual or bigender. He stated he was present to ask the board to address the issue of Mr. Walker’s comments. He believed that Mr. Walker was wrong in his comments, however, he had a right to his view, thoughts, prejudices, and biases. What he did not have a right to was to publicly speak those as though some students belong on the college campus and other students do not, that some should lie about who they were and others should be able to tell the truth. The work of education is a sacred trust which is to help people develop to their fullest potential and reach their highest levels. He encouraged the board to take disciplinary action against Mr. Walker and to make those actions public and ensure the integrity of the education process at the Maricopa Community Colleges. That is the right thing for every taxpayer to expect. It is the right thing and that they say publicly that these types of views can be held on their own but they are not okay in the public education field. Most assuredly what they should do is help every student of the Maricopa Community Colleges know that they have the right to be present and learn.
Michelle Steiner commented that she joined the U.S. Army at the age of 17 and stayed in for 22 years and now at the age of 62 finally has the opportunity to attend college at Chandler-Gilbert Community College. When she read about the comments Mr. Walker made about it being a shame that gays were on the campus, she was very hurt. She said it took years to get over her personal shame about being gay and coming to accept it for herself and then she had to hear what he said. She asked him to apologize for his comments and when he did not apologize she demanded it. She expressed that she felt it was a shame that he was sitting on this board and he had anything to do with the educational process. She asked what part of liberty and justice for all did he not understand.
Nicole Lohrbeer stated that she was also present to speak about freedom and justice. She was present to this evening as a member of two communities, that of the Maricopa Community Colleges and that of the gay, lesbian, bigender, and transgender community. She stated that she wanted to applaud the governing board for their good work and dedication to principles of diversity and inclusion as outlined in the governing board policies. She was, however, not present to address the entire board but rather to address Mr. Walker. She commented that was an intelligent, fair-minded person that was still naïve enough to believe in the idea of freedom that our country was founded upon. When Mr. Walker spoke publicly about the core values and beliefs of the institution that he was elected to represent, he not only undermined the credibility of the Board but also the education and safety of students that were enrolled in the entire Maricopa Community College System. When he spoke publicly to curtail the rights of herself and students of this institution, it is him who should feel deep shame and profound regret. She read a poem by Langston Hughes titled Dream of Freedom and afterwards stated that she hoped one day Mr. Walker would one day understand what freedom really meant and that it was not the use of his public persona for a private agenda and not to insult the people he was elected to serve. She stated that she was sure he felt he stood on the side of justice but righteousness does not back justice against a wall. She challenged him to do the right and moral thing and apologize to both of her communities and if he could not, she requested that he resign his position as Governing Board member.
