“Fox News pundit to speak at RBHS” — 5-5-2009

Quote from the article—

RB parent and Republican activist and commentator Chris Robling was instrumental in putting RB in touch with WIND so that RB could present a conservative speaker to counterbalance Ayers, who spoke at RB in February.

“It is very important for RB to present kids with a balanced view of important topics and this certainly adds balance to the question of activism that changes the world,” Robling said. “The students will be well served, because they will have the issue of activism approached from two different points on the political spectrum.”

On the morning of Ayers’ appearance Robling suggested to District 208 board member Bill McCloskey that RB schedule a conservative speaker to present a different viewpoint from Ayers.

McCloskey passed along the suggestion to RB Assistant Principal Tim Scanlon who in short order called Robling and asked for suggestions on possible speakers.
