Can University President David Boyd take out gay-basher Alexandria Coronado, in District 2 of the OC Board of Education?

[poll id=”284″]

Alexandria Coronado, the gay-bashing piano teacher who currently serves in District 2, on the Orange County Board of Education, is being challenged in the June Primary Election, by David Boyd, the President of Taft University.

Coronado represents the communities of Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos/Rossmoor, Seal Beach, Stanton, Westminster, portions of Garden Grove and portions of Costa Mesa.

Well, she does so on paper. In reality she is on the O.C. Board of Education to represent knuckle-dragging extremists. She is the heir to former SAUSD School Board Trustee Rosie Avila, who thank God was retired by Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez a couple years ago.

Here are a few excerpts from Boyd’s bio:

In 2004 I was appointed by the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California to a three-year term as the sole distance learning law school representative to the California Law School Council. The Law School Council was organized to act as a liaison between California law schools and the Committee of Bar Examiners. It deals with matters relating to content and format of the bar examination and on all aspects of law school education relevant to the bar examination process as well as other items of interest and importance to the law school community. Council representatives have included deans from the University of Southern California (Gould Law School), the University of California (Hastings College of Law), Stanford University School of Law, Loyola Law School, the University of San Diego School of Law and California Western School of Law.

Over the years, I have served as a mediator and arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and have been recognized by the AAA for my service to the organization. In the service of the AAA, I have developed skills that have allowed me participate in the resolution of many complex legal disputes.

In the past I have served as a volunteer advisor to administrators of the Fountain Valley School District Unified School District and the Huntington Beach Union High School District in areas of labor relations and budget analysis. During the years of my service, there were no teacher strikes or lock-outs.

And here are a few excerpt’s from an article Boyd wrote, about why he is running:

Until a few months ago, like most voters, I barely knew that the Orange County Board of Education existed. I’m running for this office, in part, to expose Alexandria Coronado whose intolerant and ignorant comments should be an embarrassment to Orange County, the Republican Party, and any organization or politician who has endorsed her.

Ms. Coronado is, by her own account, a piano teacher who gives lessons out of her parent’s home. Contrary to her Candidate Statement, there is nothing in the public record to indicate she is or has ever been a “small business owner” nor is there any evidence that she has ever been a classroom teacher.

I believe that as an education leader, extreme care must be taken in comments made to the public. Throughout her political career Coronado has used her platform as an elected official to make intolerant and ignorant comments.

If nothing else, she is consistent. Even if we disregard the countless vile statements that she’s made in private, documented media reports dating back over a decade reflect her fixation on gays.

Click here to see Boyd’s endorsements.  He is not seeking donations, instead he merely asks that you please spread the word about his campaign.

If we are going to take out Coronado, we will need to get the word out about Boyd. Please tell your friends, co-workers and family to vote for him, not Coronado!
