The Temecula school board’s conservative majority is no more, at least for now.
Temecula school board member Danny Gonzalez resigned effective Friday, Dec. 15. In a text message, Gonzalez said his work “is taking me out to (Texas) for the next couple years.”
Instead of commuting between Texas and California, “we have decided to live out on our 40-acre ranch and raise cattle and horses,” Gonzalez wrote.
“It was an honor and privilege to serve the Temecula community and it is with a heavy heart that we are leaving,” Gonzalez wrote. “We wish (the school district) and the entire valley well and appreciate the support we have received over this last year.”
In remarks at the end of the Tuesday, Dec. 12 board meeting, Gonzalez reflected on the board’s work in the past year, talked about what he described as harassment for doing his job and rebuked a fellow board member.
