Electing Boyd would be a low for Oxford

Former Oxford School Board director and president Chauncey Boyd, who left public office after a career of insulting and abusing his fellow school board members and members of the public – and having his residence put up for sheriff sale – just started warming up for his new job as a candidate for Oxford Borough Council in the November election with an incident of alleged public harassment against an Oxford parking enforcement officer who ticketed Boyd's truck for an expired meter.

The officer filed a criminal complaint with the state police on Oct. 15, 2015. The victim said the incident occurred on June 26 at 401 Market Street in Oxford. The parking enforcement officer swore in a criminal complaint that Boyd made racial slurs including calling her a “beaner” and threatened to fire her when he was elected to council.

After leaving as school board member, Boyd has the unmitigated gall to offer himself as a public servant again after being elected to the Oxford Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

This newspaper has publicly accused Boyd of being a bully, causing Boyd to file a federal defamation lawsuit (which was later dropped) and threaten another lawsuit after being served by the Sheriff of Chester County to sell his house for unpaid debt.

Electing Boyd to Borough Council would be a new low for the council and the town.
