According to the report, Vasquez called fellow school board members traitors after the board replaced its first Hispanic president with its first black president.
Burnam said that Vasquez “cannot behave well in public” and would not work well in the Legislature.
Vasquez accused Burnam of talking too much about environmental issues and not about the issues constituents care about. He also said that Burnam is targeting the district’s black community with robocalls.
The district was redrawn to be majority Hispanic.
The insults continued with Vasquez accusing Burnam of not campaigning hard enough for President Barack Obama in 2008. But Vasquez then revealed that he first supported Hillary Clinton while Burnam said he was always an Obama supporter.
Primary day is May 29.
