Albiso has attended two Colton Joint Unified School District board meetings to speak about trustee Marge Mendoza-Ware for statements she made at an Oct. 8 KFI AM 640 radio program. Mendoza-Ware was invited to the “John and Ken Political Human Sacrifice” program because one of their targets was U.S. Rep. Joe Baca Sr., and she was running against his son, Joe Baca Jr., in the 62nd Assembly District election.

At the event, Mendoza-Ware said that illegal immigrants are costing schools, hospitals and other public agencies a lot of money. Albiso, who considers the statement racist, has said he is upset that Mendoza-Ware acknowledged that she was a Colton trustee but did not say that her opinions were not of the entire board.

At the Nov. 4 board meeting, Albiso asked Colton trustees to censure Mendoza-Ware, and if they refused to take action, he promised to make Colton a “very complicated school district to work in.”

To do that, Albiso said, he would use the Public Records Act to request all correspondence related to actions the board has taken internally and externally and “make a public issue of them.”

At the Nov. 18 meeting, Albiso said, “Don’t be fooled. This has nothing to do with immigration. This has to do with brown faces and non-brown.”
