Jay Hansen Quits School Board Race
Many are cheering Jay Hansen’s recent announcement that he has abandoned his re-election effort for Sac City school board in Area 1. A recent poll of 300 likely voters indicated that Hansen was likely to be defeated by an overwhelming 2 to 1 margin as voters learned of his dismal record on the school board: closing schools; approving independent charters even when District staff recommended against it; supporting administrators accused of misconduct, including sexual harassment; and more.
Hansen’s welcome exit paves the wave for Anna Molander’s successful campaign for school board in Area 1.
Unfortunately, with Hansen’s track record of making unsubstantiated, irresponsible and unprincipled attacks on teachers, we should anticipate a few unprincipled parting shots as he completes the remainder of his term.
