Embattled Columbia Heights school board member resigns over comment


Embattled school board member Grant Nichols wiped away a tear after his resignation at the Columbia Heights District Center on Tuesday, following a month of controversy that roiled the district over a Facebook comment that was critical of Muslims.

He said his resignation was spurred by the chaos in the district, still asserting that someone else made the anti-Muslim Facebook comment.

“I care very much about the students and the district, so in order to end this current turmoil for the good of the district and its students, I will resign,” Nichols told attendees at the meeting.
