Demand the Resignation of Hector Gastelum from the Otay Water District Board of Directors

Hector Gastelum, an elected member of the Otay Water District Board of Directors, has called Muslims "Subhuman" and "Scum." 

On February 19, the pro-Trump board member tweeted: “Lets pressure OUR Legislators to increase list of so-called #MuslimBan to prevent #SubHuman #Scum from #USA to #MAGA.” He has also used his social media to portray Muslims as rapists and murderers. 

Gastelum has been asked to resign by members of the community for his bigoted, ignorant and inflammatory social media posts, but has refused to do so. 

Chula Vista Councilman Steve Padilla: "Given his lack of a desire to take responsibility for his comments, I would join the other voices in the community in asking him to step down."

Gastelum was elected in 2016 and his term expires in 2020.

Chula Vista is a diverse, welcoming and tolerant community with residents of all faiths and cultures. Mr. Gastelum is free to express his bigoted and ignorant views as a private citizen and realtor, but he should not be serving on a public board of directors. We ask that you demand his resignation immediately.
