City Council live — School board candidate Sales makes homophobic comments

Nothing to report out of closed session, on to public comment already.

Diane Buettner: She ripped The Record for “the same stuff that can’t be substantiated.” She said she does not buy it. She was not specific about what she was criticizing.

Vincent Sayles, who is running for the SUSD board, shared a Bible passage and said it was for “normal children,” then changed the adjective to “typical.” Now he is speaking about how the Supreme Court has legalized “homo-marriage.” Michael Tubbs called a point of order for Sales’ comments. Sales then said “homosexuals” are “going after children.”

Two 20-year-old speakers spoke about their belief that police officers should wear body cams. One, Michael Vallete, said, “I look over my shoulder not for gang-bangers but for police officers.”

That’s the end of public comment. In consent agenda, Item 12.7 was removed. A youth event Saturday has been postponed until Sept. 20.
