Johnston School Board member Soneeta Mangra-Dutcher took to Twitter to conduct a poll on why people are not getting vaccinated for COVID-19.

She listed the following possible reasons:

I am!
I can’t find where to go
I don’t believe science
I’m OK with kids dying

Yes, Mangra-Dutcher claimed that people who haven’t been vaccinated are either too stupid they can’t figure out where to go, too ignorant that they don’t believe in science or they’re OK with kids dying.

That is a sick assumption from any person — let alone a board member of a school district.

Remember, Mangra-Dutcher was the board member who said she agreed with some of Louis Fountain’s racist social media posts during his appointment as director of equity, inclusion and belonging.

Board member agrees with some of Fountain’s posts, says she does not feel comfortable stopping in some places in Iowa due to systemic racism
