Demand Janice Daniels Resign

    1. Petition by

      Joyce Wu

      New York, NY

Janice Daniels, the mayor of Troy, Michigan, wrote the following on her Facebook page: “I think I am going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there.”

While we respect everyone's First Amendment right to freedom of speech, we believe that no public official should espouse such hateful, bigoted beliefs in a public forum. Her position compels her to represent the interests of her constituents and she cannot do so if she openly discriminates against them.

The people of Troy, Michigan deserve a mayor who is respectful of all its citizens regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, class, age, physical disability, gender or sexual orientation.

      How can she represent all the people she has sworn to serve, some of whom are surely gay, if she is so obviously willing to reveal such a discriminatory and homophobic attitude? Get her out of there in the disgrace she deserves.

      Troy is and will always be my home even if I don't live there, and I am disgusted with this woman who is supposed to represent Troy.

      How do you suppose the people of Troy feel? There may be several young people in that city that are having a difficult time with their sexuality. These types of comments do not help.
