To Mohawk Trail Regional School District Superintendent Michael Buoniconti and School Committee Chairwoman Martha Thurber:

We, the undersigned individuals, demand your immediate resignation from your respective positions within the Mohawk District. 

Superintendent Buoniconti, we are disgusted by your lack of integrity and recent moral indiscretion. You have openly admitted to engaging in a personal relationship with a female subordinate. Your behavior and subsequent attempt to minimize the nature of your wrong-doing is inexcusable. You are a poor example for our students, an unacceptable leader for district employees, and a disgrace to our entire school community.  We will not allow you to cause further damage to our district and therefore demand your immediate resignation. 

To Chairwoman Thurber: Your passivity with regards to this matter, as well as the dismissive treatment you've shown when other concerns have been brought to your attention is unacceptable. Your apparent willingness to overlook Superintendent Buoniconti's recent indiscretions indicates that you are not concerned with providing a safe and respectful school climate for all students and staff. We will not allow you to cause further damage to our district and therefore demand your immediate resignation.

To the Members of the Mohawk District School Committee - In the event that Superintendent Buoniconti and/or Chairwoman Thurber do not immediately resign, we demand that you exercise your authority and remove them from their respective positions within the district. Any inaction on your part would be perpetuating the misogyny that exists in our society. Your inaction would be telling every female employee and student in the district that it is acceptable for a male supervisor to engage in an inappropriate relationship with them, and if the said relationship is discovered, that they as the female subordinate should be the one to resign. It would be telling the male employees and students that that type of behavior is acceptable. 

As concerned community members, taxpayers, current and former employees, parents, and students in the Mohawk Trail Regional School District, we are signing this petition to demand the immediate resignation of Superintendent Michael Buoniconti and School Committee Chairwoman Martha Thurber.
