SUSD Board Majority Must Resign & Rescind Hiring of John Ramirez Jr.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The Stockton Unified Board of Trustees majority, Cecila Mendez, Maria Mendez, Scot McBrian, Alicia Rico, and Ray Zulueta, have hired a known sexual harasser and former school superintendent known for misusing public funds for personal use.  They voted to hire John Ramirez Jr., associate of disgraced former Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva, in a closed door emergency meeting, so as to hide their vote from public input. This board majority abuses emergency meeting processes; the Brown Act (laws about transparency), all to enact an agenda created by Anthony Silva and the fake news site 209Times.

With a $22 million deficit, a pandemic, distance learning, and stress on Stockton families, this Board majority is compounding problems that will impact the educational outcomes of 40,000 students. They play loose with the law and engage in croynism with their handpicked attorney, Jack Lipton, another Silva associate. Helping them is a handful of people in local teacher union leadership (not our wonderful rank & file teachers who oppose the hiring of Ramirez Jr.).

We demand Trustees Cecilia Mendez, Maria Mendez, Scot McBrian, Alicia Rico, and Ray Zulueta resign immediatelly, and the immediate rescinding of John Ramirez Jr. as interim SUSD Superintendent. Sign and share this petition widely demanding their resignations and the dismissal of John Ramirez Jr.
