More than 200 people turned out in Temecula Wine Country this weekend to show their support for a recall of three local school board members whose ideology has altered classroom instruction and marred the reputation of what is, historically, a prestigious public school district.

Temecula Valley Unified School District trustees Dr. Joseph Komrosky, Jennifer Wiersma and Danny Gonzalez are facing a growing call for their ouster, which was on display at Saturday’s recall rally at Maurice Car’rie Winery. Organized by One Temecula Valley PAC, and spearheaded by co-founders Jeff Pack and David Matics, the event featured national organizations and respected local leaders who encouraged the community to get behind the recall effort.

“The children are the innocent victims in this sickening scenario,” Edwards said. The trio is a “cancer in this community and must be removed from office.”

In their short tenure — just over eight months — Komrosky, Wiersma and Gonzalez have banned any murmur of critical race theory; held a controversial and costly critical race theory “panel” that many TVUSD teachers dubbed “indoctrination camp”; they censored education about California’s gay rights movement; have defied the state’s education code; fired the district superintendent; hired their own team of attorneys at taxpayers’ expense to defend against ongoing lawsuits over their actions; have sparked numerous TVUSD student protests; and put the district in a negative national spotlight.
