Have Matthew Jansen Removed From Spring Grove's School Board

This petition had 680 supporters


I would like to have Matthew Jansen removed from the Spring Grove School District School Board.  A church in Dallastown put up a sign wishing a blessed Ramadan to their Muslim neighbors in front of the Church and posted a picture of it onto social media.  Matthew Jansen called the church, asking the preacher "are you sick? Is there something wrong with you?" Jansen referred to Islam as "godless" and called the churches kind gesture "despicable."  As a representative for the school, this man cannot be doing things like this.  There are Muslim students in the school where he is on the school board. Also, it's incredibly unprofessional to do such a thing.  I am hoping the Spring Grove Area School District will remove Matthew Jansen and not let our school be represented by someone so ignorant and out of order.  Here is the article explaining what happened (contains Jansens voicemail to the church): http://www.ydr.com/story/news/2016/06/18/pastor-harassed-over-sign-supporting-muslims/86051478/
