CONCERNED CITIZENS OF GREENSBORO GA started this petition to Greensboro GA City Council

City of Greensboro residents, please sign this petition if you think the Greensboro City Counselors should ask for Mr. Barry Fleming’s resignation- for trying to limit voting rights. Mr. Fleming is both City of Greensboro attorney and elected representative in the Georgia state house for the 121st district (near Augusta).

As author of HB 531, the core of Georgia's new voting law that was signed by the Governor on March 25, a law that Stacy Abrams calls "Jim Crow in a suit and tie", Mr. Fleming cannot serve all Greensboro residents as attorney AND pursue a Republican agenda to undermine elections. The law increases Republican control over county elections, and is an unfunded mandate requiring counties to overhaul their election systems.  

Republicans should win the battle of ideas not make it harder for Democrats to vote. Black people have come too far to stand by while Republicans like Barry Fleming try to turn back the clock. 

Mr. Fleming is attorney in seven other counties and cities in Georgia. In Hancock County, where the population is 85% Black, the County Commissioners responded to public pressure and forced Mr. Fleming to resign. 

Other cities and counties in Georgia where Mr. Fleming is attorney are also working to remove him. Greensboro residents are doing the same. 

We have no other way to hold Mr. Fleming accountable- he is appointed, not elected. As city attorney, Mr. Fleming helps oversee the very elections he seeks to influence!

Help protect Martin Luther King's, John Lewis' and Stacy Abrams' legacy- please sign the petition: tell the Greensboro City Counselors to ask for Barry Fleming's resignation!
