MAGA multi-millionaires are spending big to elect book-banning voucher-supporting extremists to school boards.
$600,000 in 2021… That is what venture capitalist Paul Martino donated to Pennsylvania school board candidates who flouted COVID safety, banned books, supported school vouchers, and decried diversity and inclusion.
Now his spouse, Aarati, is running for school board. According to Mrs. Martino, they moved to Pennsylvania to escape California’s “liberalism” and “gangster” public school students.
While promoting his wife’s run for school board, Mr. Martino declared “It’s not the school’s job to create safe spaces; it’s the school’s job to educate our kids.”
Central Bucks School District deserves a school board that fights racism rather than pretend it doesn’t exist, that fights for critical thinking, not QAnon conspiracy theories, that encourages open mindedness, not bans books, and that fights for a diverse democracy rather than white supremacy.
It is time to stop extremists like the Martinos before they gain more influence in Bucks County.
Out of PUBLIC schools comes the greatness of the nation.
