Petition ousts Paso Robles School Board member

December 13, 2022

Trustee Kenneth E. Enney Jr.


A petition seeking the removal an appointed Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Board trustee was successful, according to the board.

After 512 signatures were validated, Kenney E. Enney Jr. was removed from the board. The board will now hold a special election at an estimated cost of $493,000 to the school district.

In a 4-2 vote, the district board of trustees selected Enney in October to replace Chris Bausch, who resigned in order to take a seat on the Paso Robles City Council.

Carey Alvord organized the petition drive, after voicing concerns over divisiveness in the district. Several signers condemned Enney on social media for sharing a link that included criticisms of the trans community.

If I was Kenneth Enney Jr., I would run for that position again. He has that right and freedom.

He exercised his right to free speech by promoting anti-LGBTQ+ views.

Others exercised their own free speech, in terms of a petition to recall this person.

Everyone has the right to free speech. You do not, however, have a right to be free of the consequences of that speech.

I certainly do enjoy tolerance. Unfortunately, there is no tolerance here.

It’s very clear now, Paso has a problem. Too many Bay Area rejects now reside in Paso. What’s next, Needle Park?

It’s a shame that special interest groups have priority over educating our children. And the cost to the district? There goes even more important resources. Shameful. I guess now we know what the district sees as their job and purpose.
