Reynoso supporters held protest at Hayward school board president’s home

Supporters of Hayward school boardmember Luis Reynoso protested at the home of school board president April Oquenda on Monday afternoon.

About two dozen demonstrators held signs near Oquenda’s residence in Hayward’s Burbank neighborhood depicting her and two other school district officials as corrupt for seeking Reynoso’s removal from the board.

The conflict followed Reynoso’s re-election to the school board last November and his victory in the Chabot-Las Positas Community College Board of Directors race.

Reynoso intends to serve both offices, but Hayward school officials argue he cannot legally serve both due to a conflict of interest. School boardmembers moved on Dec. 30 to declare he had forfeited the school board seat.

Latino residents have balked at the school board’s recent actions and have accused Oquenda (formerly known as April Anderson), school boardmember Ken Rawdon, and Hayward Superintendent Matt Wayne of racism. In addition, Reynoso, often a thorn in Hayward political establishment’s side, is being targeted by the group, his supporters have repeatedly argued.

  1. Its time to protest the Hayward Teachers Union as well. They are also responsible for hurting our kids education for decades.


  2. You are so unbiased arent you?? wHY DONT YOU REVEAL THAT REYNOSO IS YOUR BFF


    • You must be UNION ball swinger. I’m definitely not Reynoso’s BFF. I think he’s very arrogant. He thinks he is smarter and special than everyone else because he has a PHD. There are many Board members and HUSD staff that hold a PHD and call themselves doctors, but between all of them, they still can’t educate our kids. The cure is to stop the Hayward Teaches Union from stealing the tax payers money and keep them from trying to change the election results. Reynoso won the seat by the voters, just like Biden did. I’m sure you voted for Biden, so stop being a hypocrite.


  3. oh yeah. You can be sure an anonymous internet poster voted for Biden. Oh ok.

    that’s nice dear.



  4. WHY do you keep LYING like Reynoso and his uneducated minions and pretending this is reporting.These people who are protesting were LIED to by Reynoso and assumed to be too stupid because they were Hispanic. How RACIST.

    Reynoso broke the LAW. He knew it. He was told by HUSD and Los Positos he had to chose one office. He refused. He chose to be a racist and LIE. Anyone who supports him or his lies and attacks others for following the law and what is moral is a RACIST.


  5. Reynoso must have gotten his PhD out of the bottom of a Cracker Jack box, as dumb as he is. Reynoso is just another example of a corrupt individual trying to make money off the back of the taxpayers – typical for Hayward politicians. Now he plays the race card and identity politics – yet another tactic of greedy, corrupt heartless individuals whose only interest is self gain. 30 years ago Hayward had the best public schools in the USA, now they are some of the worst and its people like Reynoso that drove the schools into the dirt. And if you think the destitution of Hayward public schools has something to do with “White Privilege” or so other leftist concocted race baiting idiocy, think again, because Hayward public schools students are mostly people of color.


  6. Wayne and Oquenda must have received their PHD from TRUMP University. I think Faraj got her teachers credential there as well. They only think about how much money they can make off the working class. It doesn’t matter if the kids are white, black, brown, yellow or green.


  7. Honest question: How much does a school board member make (salary)?
