RCCD Faculty Association calls for the immediate resignation of Trustee Nathan Miller
The Faculty Association of the Riverside Community College District read with alarm, dismay and sorrow of Trustee Nathan Miller's inappropriate tweets. As many of our community members are aware, on Wednesday, August 3rd Mr. Miller tweeted a picture of a hangman with an ax to his side, two empty nooses swung from the gallows, and the words ‘I’m Ready for Hillary'.
Though we are not surprised by the descent into such crude incivility given the broader political culture, we are determined to shield our great public institution of higher learning from this infection. Mr. Miller's behavior is not acceptable in our community - we wouldn't tolerate it from our students.
Mr. Miller’s actions forced him to resign from his position of Deputy District Director as he could no longer represent Board of Equalization member Diane Harkey in good conscience. In similar fashion, the RCCD Faculty Association asks that out of respect to the voters, students, faculty, his fellow board members, and for the sake of the integrity of the Riverside Community College District, Nathan Miller resign from the Board of Trustees immediately and withdraw his candidacy from the November election.
