(Calexico Mayor placed on administrative leave from his day job)…..Bill Hodge is the Drama teacher at Calexico High School.
Hodge is a Calexico City Council member, currently serving as the Mayor of the City. The official reason for placing him on administrative leave this week is that scenes in the plays Cultural Clash and Lovers and Other Strangers were deemed inappropriate for students. Hodge does not agree. Others are saying the action against him were politically motivated. It is not known how long Hodge will be punished by the School District.
