(Scroll down for video) A New Jersey School Board member was slammed after saying that there are too many already on the School Board, according to a statement released by the president of the School Board.
The Evesham Township Council called for the School Board member who allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks to resign.
Now, lawmakers passed a resolution calling on Rosemary Bernardi to resign during a board meeting this week.
Bernardi was criticized for allegedly making an observation described by some as “anti-Semitic” at the Board of Education meeting of the Township of Evesham in the beginning of the month.
Evesham Mayor Randy Brown spoke at the board meeting.
“You have not been at ShopRite on Saturday for three hours and talked to residents about this. No one has said ‘you can stay. We’re fine with anti-Semitic remarks. It is okay,’ No, it’s not. Never,” Brown said.
In May, Bernardi did post an apology on her Facebook page: “Categorization of individuals on the basis of religion, race, gender or sexual orientation has no place in our society, and especially in our public discourse.”
The woman has since resigned.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
