John Hoffman’s comments to A-H School Board regarding Bryan Lindquist’s appointment to the anti-bullying task force.
Monday, October 22, 2012
“Point of information…I want to speak out in opposition of the appointment of Bryan Lindquist to the anti-bullying task force. Mr. Lindquist, representing the Parent Action League, has repeatedly spoken out against affirming all students and does not support the current policy. Mr. Lindquist has publicly stated that LGBT individuals suffer from a disorder. This kind of language and sentiment has no place on this task force and does not represent the views of the vast majority of residents that I am talking to within the Anoka-Hennepin School District, and it certainly doesn’t represent the needs and rights of all students. The time for this debate is over, and the debate on this policy is over. I ask that Mr. Lindquist be removed from the task force and another member appointed.”
