Anti-Trans Lawyer Behind 2017 Failed Bathroom Ban in Pine-Richland School District Running for School Board in 2023

Mike Wiethorn is so committed to harassing and bullying trans and queer kids in the Pine Richland School District that six years after suffering a significant judicial defeat about anti-trans policies, he’s decided to run for a seat on the PR school board

District 3 candidate, Mike Wiethorn.

Mike is an attorney with 30 plus years of experience. He is a partner in an Amlaw 100 firm and serves as defacto general counsel and a trusted business advisor to clients that represent a range of entrepreneurs, professional practices, and family and privately held businesses. Mike resides in Richland Township with his wife. Together, they raised two children who attended Pine-Richland schools.

Mike is running for school board to ensure that parents remain involved, informed, and in control of their children’s education. Academic achievement in Pine-Richland continues to lag behind pre-pandemic levels, and he will fight to bring focus at the district back on reading, writing, and arithmetic. Mike will be an advocate for taxpayers and is opposed to tax increases.

That’s from PR Kids First, a coalition of rightwing extremists who are trying to control the kids by controlling the school board.

In July 2017, Pine Richland School District settled a lawsuit filed on behalf of three trans students.

The three teen plaintiffs graduated from Pine-Richland High School on June 2 [2017], but the settlement will apply to all students. As part of the agreement, the school board repealed the bathroom restrictions, extended nondiscrimination protections to transgender students and directed schools to give them access to the bathrooms of the gender they live as. The board cleared the policies on July 17 with a 6-to-2 vote.

“As a result, any student across the District may access restrooms based upon his or her consistently and uniformly asserted gender identity. Any student may also access a single-user restroom,” the school district said in a statement.

Mike Wiethorn was anti-trans student long before Trump, MTG, and the RNC made it popular.

I must admit this makes me want to sob – there are 501 school districts in Pennsylvania. How can we track the oppressors in each of them?

If you live in Pine Richland School District or know someone who does, please share with them. There’s a political group called Together for Pine Richland that is promoting progressive, fair-minded candidates who want to keep all students safe and focused on learning.
