Enlightened Republican

This certainly stands as one of the more enlightened Repub statements:

“We certainly need diversity,” said Johanna Bees, a Republican committeewoman who spoke outside the city library. “But the school board had to consider qualifications first.” Ms. Bees paused and then added: “One of my gripes is that all these people should learn English. When they’re walking on the street and they’re jabbering in Spanish, it really annoys me.”

Regarding a recent Bethlehem, PA schoolboard appointment wherein a Hispanic candidate was not selected.
