Michael Loconto Wiki Bio

Boston schools official resigns after being caught with a hot microphone making racist jokes and making fun of foreign-sounding speaker names during a public meeting

Boston School Committee Chairman Michael Loconto tendered his resignation Thursday morning, which was accepted by Mayor Marty Walsh.

A moment captured with a hot Zoom mic has resulted in the resignation of one of Boston’s highest education officials.

During the Zoom meeting late Wednesday night, Executive Secretary Elizabeth Sullivan was listing the next speakers when Loconto chimed in on a microphone she didn’t know was on.

“So that was like Shinya Shan Shan Na and Boo Boo,” Loconto seemed to say.

Many believe his comments were derogatory and racist, as the names Sullivan listed were primarily Asian in origin.

The comment was heard on the hot mic around 11:30 p.m. local time.

Minutes later, Loconto tried to explain his comments, saying he was being ‘misunderstood’ and that he was talking to someone in the room with him about a children’s book.

But the pressure immediately mounted against Loconto, and at least seven councilors immediately called for his resignation, according to the Boston Globe.

“As someone who has an ethnic name, he is shocking and personally offensive,” said Annissa Essaibi-George, a city councilor.

“As someone who has dealt with comments like these all my life, I am deeply disappointed but not surprised,” added City Councilor Michelle Wu.

According to the Boston Public Schools website, Loconto was appointed to the committee in 2014 and was expected to serve through 2021. The West Roxbury resident and Boston Public Schools father have served as president for the past three years.

Loconto also serves as General Counsel at Curry College, a private school in Milton, Massachusetts.
