School board president resigns, apologizes for calling parent 'chubby wubby' during meeting

A New York school board president who described a PTA parent as "chubby wubby" during a public meeting has resigned.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1oqSlsf ) says Ray Cote's resignation was announced at a Mahopac Board of Education meeting Tuesday night.

The school district's attorney says Cote also withdrew his candidacy for re-election.

Cote issued an apology. He called words his "inappropriate" and said they "do not reflect my feelings or attitudes."

He made the remark during a board meeting last month. It was broadcast on a local cable access station and live-streamed on the Internet.

Cote is a member of a diversity and sensitivity initiative created following racist tweets posted by some Mahopac (MAY'-oh-pak) students during a basketball game.
