About 20 miles from Sacramento lies the city of Woodland, the county seat of Yolo County.

Critics of the Woodland Joint Unified School District Board of Trustees have initiated a recall petition for Emily MacDonald, the current Area Two representative. Laura Brubaker a mother of two at the Woodland Joint Unified School District started the petition after comments MacDonald made at a school board meeting on June 15 regarding transgender people.

“We must act with great caution in order to protect the increasing numbers of children who are experiencing transgender procedures as a result of social contagion,” MacDonald said at that meeting.

“As a member of our school board, you are entrusted to serve ALL of Woodland’s students and create an environment that fosters understanding, self-acceptance, and inclusion. Your remarks betrayed that trust. I can no longer trust you to act in the best interest of my children and our community’s children,” Brubaker said in a board meeting June 28.

In the board meeting held on June 28, Brubaker’s petition had already received 20 signatures. Brubaker needed just 30 to signatures to file a notice of intention, which she obtained and now, has enough signatures to qualify for the 2024 primary ballot.

The next step in the recall process will be a vote town-wide vote on the March 5, 2024.
