Statement by county executive candidate Legislator Ed Day:
The actions of Chris Kirby, a contracted representative of the East Ramapo School District, in viciously cursing and verbally abusing parents, students, and taxpayers, are not only unacceptable, they merit his immediate dismissal. Beyond that, the fact that the school board sat there and allowed this disturbing scene to continue is yet another indication of their complete failure to run the district or to respect their own students. Mr. Kirby, like Mr. D’Agostino before him, and every member of the school board should be completely ashamed. I stand with the students and parents of East Ramapo and demand Mr. Kirby and Mr. D’Agostino’s immediate termination.
