CA School District President Caught Saying ‘F*** You’ To Frustrated Parent During Meeting

School boards in America have seen and heard pushback from parents as COVID mandates are kept in place indefinitely. California has arguably been the strictest state overseeing these restrictions: mandating its most populated counties to adopt vaccine passports and indoor masking, including schools.

Hope is waning for California residents as mask mandates fail to ease up while cases steadily go down.

Pent-up frustration has stirred up groups of parents to fight back against COVID mandates on children, which led to an unpleasant reaction from one Los Alamitos Unified board member.

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Marlys Davidson — president of the Los Alamitos Unified School District — thought she was off mic when she whispered “f*** you” at one of the parents appearing at the meeting to voice their opinion.

The parent, Lauren Roupoli, had a crowd of gathered parents applauding over her opposition toward masks and vaccines — prompting Davidson at one point to mellow out the crowd. Once Roupoli walked away as her time expired, Davidson let out the insult.

According to the New York Post, Roupoli and the accompanying parents did not catch what Davidson said during the session. Someone who knew Roupoli and tuned in to the live stream of the school board’s hearing caught the member’s slight and informed the parent.

Davidson reached out to apologize to Roupoli for the comment, but was rejected.

“These people are supposed to be listening to our concerns and that’s their job as a board, especially as a president of the board,” Roupoli said. 

School boards and parents remain largely divided among prominent Blue states — including Virginia, where gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe has been seen as a major opponent against parents having a say on school mandates.
