PA school board member refuses to vote for a white cis male for president

A school board member from Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, said she would not vote for “the only white cis male” on the board to serve as president, although she did say beforehand that he would make an excellent president.

The Upper Moreland School District, located in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia, held its last school board meeting on December 6th.

During the meeting, School Board Treasurer Jennifer Solot chaired the motions as acting president until a new president was elected.

Two names were considered for the top management position: April Stainback and Greg D’Elia.

Just before the vote, Solot pondered who she would vote for.

“I think Mr. D’Elia would make an excellent President,” she said. “However, I feel that electing the only white cis male to serve on this district’s board sends the wrong message to our community: a message that is at odds with what we have been trying to achieve as a board.”

With the influx of gender types, cisgender refers to those who identify with the gender they were given at birth.

Based on Solot’s statements, D’Elia was born a male and identifies as a male.

Solot went on to say that she believes it’s important to practice what they preach as a school board and recognize that their words have power, whether they’re spoken on sidewalks in the communities they serve or behind the tables , where they sit during the meetings.

“Ms. Stainback has done an exemplary job as President over the past few months, and the strength of her performance earned her my vote tonight,” added Solot.

When the vote came down, eight members voted for Stainback while D’Elia was the only vote for himself.

D’Elia and Solot did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the matter. PA school board member refuses to vote for a white cis male for president
