Connie Trube was discussing the school district’s financial and academic issues with the husband of a political rival, but what Trube probably didn’t know was that she was being recorded.
“It’s not going to get any better until you get those blacks off the school board,” Trube explains during the recording. “She really turned black. She got on the school board with the rest of the blacks and they all just ganged up and that’s why the school system has gone to hεll.”
Although some in the community have called on Trube to resign, she has defended her remarks.
“What is on the tape is nothing more than me stating my honest opinion, and I don’t back down from that,” Trube said. “I never denied what was on the tape.”
“If you’re heard on tape making disparaging remarks, I’m just saying, it’s time that you resign,” said resident Geraldine Sam, according to Click2Houston.
A candidate for council has also chimed in.
“It really casts a negative shadow on the city. We can’t move forward with those dark clouds hovering over the city,” said council candidate Christopher Lane.
Trube has already been censored by the city council and a formal investigation is ongoing.
“Racism will not be tolerated on any level in the city of La Marque,” said Mayor Bobby Hocking.
