(ROANOKE) — In the wake of the fallout from a strongly worded, widely read Facebook rebuke of the presidential election of Donald Trump, Lynchburg City School Board member Jenny Poore resigned Sunday.

Despite the attention her Facebook comments have received, Poore told The News & Advance on Tuesday the social media blowback was not the sole reason she chose to step down from the school board.

This fall Poore twice sat out the Pledge of Allegiance at Lynchburg City School Board meetings to protest the deaths of Terence Crutcher and Keith Scott — black men killed by the police. Now she said her decision to sit — along with fellow school board member Derek Polley — prompted public scrutiny.
