HOBOKEN — A member of the Hoboken Board of Education is calling for the resignation of a colleague who inadvertently texted a message to the full board containing the term ‘butt buddies,’ in reference to an openly gay city councilman and a political supporter.
“For the good of the school district, she should resign,” said school board member John Madigan. “We have a gay-straight student alliance in the high school. You think that’s going to make them feel welcome?”
Madigan said he would formally call on the sender to resign at the the board’s next meeting on Tuesday.
The text was sent by Irene Korman Sobolov, a 2009 board appointee elected to her second three-year term in November as part of the sweep by the three-person Forward Together slate.
