ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. -- Elmwood Park Board of Education trustee Gladys Gryskiewicz resigned on Friday, April 22, after continued controversy over Facebook posts, The Record has reported.
Gryskiewicz cited concerns for her family's safety, following backlash from residents and local and state officials, and others, according to The Record.
As The Record reported,
The Facebook posts, penned by Gryskiewicz earlier this year, include one where she said Muslims should 'stay in your desserts[sic] and follow your religion in your own countries.' In another, Gryskiewicz states, 'we cannot allow Islam to take over,' and in another writes: 'Why now are we giving into[sic] the Muslims way of life? The French told them to get lost. This is what our President should be emulating.'
