Petitioning Mayor Wharton, Governor Bill Haslam & James Rogers Interim Directer

Don't punish Carol Lynch for telling the truth


We are supporters of Carol Lynch. An employee at Memphis Animal Shelter for 22 years. She is being treated unfairly and unjustly by the City of Memphis for filing animal cruelty charges against MAS. Carol Lynch has consistently been in court enforcing the laws when no other officer was in court. She has done this for years. She is professional, efficient and competent, by far the best animal control officer that the shelter employs. Without Carol many animals would have died horrible deaths, and no one would have been charged with animal cruelty. She is respected by judges, the police and the prosecutors. This is obvious retaliation by the animal shelter and the city. It only serves to confirm the low opinion of the management of this shelter & the situation therein, held by voters & & watchers alike, .. We the People are not impressed.

Firing this woman for telling the truth would make a bad situation worse! There is an opportunity here to do the right thing, we urge you to take it .....
