Four members of the Williamston School Board could lose their positions because they voted for the district's Transgender student policy. Parents form the district say that what those running for the board (against the current board members) are saying in public contradicts what they are saying on social media.

Julica Herman de la Fuente stated "But we have screen shots of them, so it's a lack of consistency and that makes me worry that in fact what is driving the recallers is hatred and fear. Hatred and fear for people that are not like them."

Williamston's board adopted the Transgender policy last year. The policy required the district to accept the gender identity of a student's choosing.

Karen Potter, one of the canduidates running against Greg Talberg, President of the current Board of Education, states that she supports and values all human beings, however her Facebook "likes" may tell a different story.
