This petition had 28 supporters


Charles Brotman, age 89, has been the presidental inauguration announcer since 1957, until he was fired this year by president-elect Trump. In the words of Brotman, the decision, which came weeks after the death of his wife, "destroyed him." 

"I thought I was going to commit suicide," says Brotman. "It was really, really terrible."

Charles Brotman has always been praised as a kind man, and has done his job faithfully for many years. This would have been his 60th inauguration. The decision was unexpected, -and made a week before the inauguration. There was no reason for his dismissal. Please help this man get his job back.
