    The newly elected Wicomico County Board of Education recently surrendered their authority and approved a policy to allow for obscene materials to be brought into the school in section III. C. of their policy. To discover the position of elected officials outside of the Wicomico County Board of Education, the Delmarva Parent Teacher Coalition reached out to each elected official that represents Wicomico County. The message to them contained all of the evidence of the obscene materials used in Wicomico County Public Schools. This includes the Wicomico County Council, Executive Office, Delegates, Senators, and Congressman. All of them were asked if they would write a letter to the WCBOE denouncing the use of obscene materials and ask for the removal from our schools. The result of their actions are below.

    Those that oppose the obscene materials and acted by asking the WCBOE for the removal:

    Councilman Joe Holloway - response

    Senator Johnny Mautz - response

    Delegate Wayne Hartman - response

    Those that claim to oppose the obscene materials, but makes excuses for the school, makes excuses for the obscene materials, and hides behind an invalid process to protect the materials:

    Executive Julie Giordano - response

    Refused to write a letter, denied the existence of obscene materials, contacted the Director of the DPTC and threatened to "Fix" him should his response be reported on social media:

    Councilman Jeff Merritt

    Those that would not state their position and remain silent:

    Councilman Shane Baker

    Councilman John Cannon

    Councilman Josh Hastings

    Councilwoman Shanie Shields

    Councilman James Winn

    Senator Marybeth Carozza

    Delegate Chris Adams

    Delegate Thomas Huchinson

    Delegate Carl Anderton

    Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes

    Congressman Andy Harris

    The sexual exploitation of children is a serious matter, and silence is consent.
