MAHOPAC, N.Y. – Some parents are calling for the resignation of a school board president in Putnam County after he described a woman as "chubby wubby" on an open mike.
The Journal News says the remark by Ray Cote was made during a Mahopac school board meeting last month. It was videotaped and broadcast on a local cable access station and live-streamed via the Internet.
Parents plan to call for Cote's resignation at a board meeting Tuesday night.
The Journal says Cote is a member of a diversity and sensitivity initiative created in March following racist tweets posted by some Mahopac students during a basketball game.
The school didn't respond to requests seeking comment.
WABC-TV says Cote was in a meeting Monday and unavailable for comment.
