NEW ORLEANS — The Alliance For Good Government announced it is pulling its endorsement for St. Tammany Parish School Board member Sharon Lo Drucker.
The pulled endorsement comes after the St. Tammany Parish School Board voted 11-4 to ask her to resign following her arrest for allegedly shoplifting $58.25 worth of goods from a Walmart.
Drucker pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor theft in October and is now in a year-long diversion program.
"I am not resigning my position as District 9 School Board Representative as I said in my press release, and I'm sticking to it," Drucker said.
In a letter to Drucker, the Alliance for Good Government said Drucker did not disclose that she was arrested in July when filling out a candidate questionnaire for the organization in August. The organization added that Drucker will not be allowed to use the organization's logo during her current term in office.
Drucker is accused of shoplifting last year at Covington's Walmart.
Drucker allegedly stole a jalapeno, a lime, some aluminum foil, shampoo and some soup mix for a total of about $58. She admitted she's in a diversion program and says she's keeping her seat at this table.
"There has been a small group who've been relentlessly attacking me and have tried to influence people's opinions of me. However, my 30-plus years of hard work in this community and my commitment to volunteerism is what my voters see in me," Drucker said.
