PA school board member forced to resign after rejecting fully qualified straight white male as chair

The Pennsylvania school board member who said the quiet part out loud during a recent meeting, denouncing the election of a straight white man to head the board over a female candidate, has called it quits.

Jennifer Solot, the Upper Moreland School District board treasurer, said she refused to approve as president “the only cis white male” on the board, even though she admitted that Greg D’Elia would be an “excellent” selection.

“I believe that Mr. D’Elia would make an excellent president,” she said on December 6. “However, I feel that electing the only cis white male on this board president of this district sends the wrong message to our community: a message that is contrary to what we as a board have been trying to accomplish.”

Yet, to this day if you talk openly about the left’s practice of discriminating against white males you’ll be called a conspiracy theorist and have QAnon accusations thrown your way.

Fortunately, in this case, the bigot succumbed to the massive backlash over her remarks and did the right thing in resigning.

On Monday, April Stainback, who was elected president over D’Elia, and Dr. Susan Elliott, the district superintendent, announced that Solot had stepped down.

“As a result of this incident, Ms. Solot has decided to resign from the board effective January 2, 2023. She wishes to apologize for her poorly chosen words and does not want to be a distraction from the great things happening in our schools on a daily basis,” Elliott and Stainback said in a statement, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“The comments made by Ms. Solot at the board reorganization meeting were solely hers and were not intended to represent the opinion of the entire UMSD Board of Directors or the district as a whole,” the release added. Indeed, Board Director Greg D’Elia, who was the subject of her comments, says that he ‘supports diversity, but these comments did not further diversity and reflected poorly on our community.'”

The superintendent and board president said discrimination would not be tolerated in the district.

“We value the full diversity of the community we serve and help all students and staff achieve success without discrimination on the basis of race, color, age, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ancestry, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, disability, or gender identity,” they said.
