In response to Anthony Riley not attending the recent special Hesperia School Board meeting on a critical budget issue, which was scheduled for this past Wednesday and instead chose to attend a political fundraiser in Victorville arrogantly ignoring his responsibilities to the people of Hesperia. He is guilty of pursuing issues of self interest rather than fulfilling his responsibility as an elected member of the School Board. He is running for another elected office and wants to be our next Assemblyman, yet blatantly does not follow through on his current responsibilities to CSEA, the school district and most of all the citizens of Hesperia.


Therefore I call on Anthony Riley to do the right thing by immediately resigning from the school board. Clearly it is obvious he doesn't care enough to represent our community, as an elected official. We certainly do not need to continue paying him a $400 monthly stipend as a representative of the School Board, when he is absent from this important meeting and many others.
