Macomb County mother sues Chippewa Valley school board over free speech

Macomb County mother is suing the Chippewa Valley School Board after members of the board emailed the department of justice and her employer complaining about her behavior at school board meetings.

At the height of the pandemic, school board meetings across the state became heated and sometimes ugly. Parents dissatisfied with no in-person learning and or angry about mask policies.

Sandra Hernden was one of them.

“I have every right to air my grievances and ask for help from the school board, especially when it comes to my child,” said Hernden.

She became a regular at Chippewa Valley School Board meetings and was blunt and perceived as hostile in her comments to the board. Two board members, the secretary, and the president, emailed her employer and the Department of Justice to complain about her.
