West Bend School Board President Reverses Vote: Grants Approval to Gay Straight Alliance

West Bend School Board President Randy Marquardt reversed his earlier vote and granted approval for a Gay Straight Alliance to receive official recognition as a school-sponsored club.  The final vote for approval was 4-3.  According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article , Marquardt said he was “still opposed giving the group club status but said he did not believe a legal fight was in the district’s interest.”
