SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A student trustee is drawing criticism over Holocaust comments that a community college official called abhorrent and contrary to history.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1N0Tqnq) student trustee Cameron Weaver told an editor with American River College’s student newspaper The Current that he wasn’t going to say the Holocaust didn’t happen, but that he didn’t know the answer.

Web editor Barbara Harvey says the story has sparked talk of a recall.

Los Rios Community College board president Dustin Johnson said in an email that Weaver’s comments were troubling to the board and abhorrent to the views of its members.

The 26-year-old is in his third year at the college. He is paid an $8,500 stipend as student trustee.

Weaver sent a letter to trustees saying the story didn’t reflect his views.
