School District of Indian River County C.L.I.M.A.T.E. Task Force co-chairman, Stacey Rutledge Klim, speaks ill and doxxes Indian River County citizens for having different views.

On June 29th, Vero News posted a news article on Facebook about Dr. Mara Schiff leaving the school board. Comments varied from supportive to disappointment of her leaving.

The bias comes from comments by Stacey Rutledge Klim. In it, she hyperbolically proclaims that Dr. Gene Posca, school board member elect, is a “nut job” and states that his “MORALS and VALUES and human decency are different.” Other examples of her partisanship can be seen on her public page Stacey Klim – Advocate, the private Facebook group Liberals in Vero, and SDIRC public records. Instances vary from doxxing private citizens, to speaking ill of Christianity (Evidence in photos below).

Were she a random person online, this would not be a problem. However, Stacey Klim is the chairman of the Communication and Engagement group of the C.L.I.M.A.T.E Task Force for the School District of Indian River County. Her group is expected to establish connections and trust among all internal and external stakeholders of the school district. Not only is she unwilling to work alongside an incoming school board member, her comments and actions can and will irreparably severe trust among all internal and external stakeholders who do not have similar beliefs to hers.
