Remove Shayna Lathus from the Huntington Beach Citizen Participation Advisory Board

This petition made change with 960 supporters!

On April 27, 2019, violent, radical hate group “ANTIFA” disrupted a peaceful rally being held in my hometown of Huntington Beach. The rally was held to express support for legal immigration and stronger border control. Former Huntington Beach City Council Candidate Shayna Lathus stood alongside the masked domestic terrorists as they made threats, for more than an hour.

Eventually, numerous members of ANTIFA were arrested for violently attacking an innocent citizen, among other things. Throughout the entire event, as I witnessed, Lathus appeared not once to separate herself from the ANTIFA mob. When a local police officer was thrown from his horse, an ANTIFA member could be heard chanting, “Feed the horse, kill the pig!” (captured on video, along with much of Lathus’ behavior). Based on social media posts, she appeared to arrive and leave with ANTIFA organizer/sympathizer Victor Valladares, pictured above holding the bullhorn. She clearly seemed to be part of the operation which disrupted the city with unnecessary hate and violence. Today, Lathus’ close supporters in the private online group “Indivisible OC” were actually raising bail money for the ANTIFA arrestees. We call on City Councilwoman Kim Carr, who appointed Lathus to the post, to please remove her at once. 

Lathus is heavily endorsed and financially supported by Congressman Harley Rouda and Ocean View School District Trustee Gina Clayton Tarvin, among many other local Democrats. What do they think of this behavior I wonder?  Her associations with radical violent groups, while constitutionally protected, has no place in our local city government in my opinion.

I have spent my entire life in Huntington Beach. While we are an open, accepting community, we have standards we need to uphold. The Participation Advisory Board position is an important one, and deserves a more responsible, less extreme person than Shayna Lathus, whose radical associations have been well documented. Removing her will make a positive statement to the community that our local government has no place for this kind of radical behavior. Thank you for signing my petition.
