Heather Kuhl's Offensive Political Rhetoric
Wauwatosa can no longer suffer the vile political rhetoric of Alderperson Heather Kuhl aka Vanilla Vixen or her "profane, unhinged Twitter account."
Aside from her appalling remarks, she has also defended the vile, racist remarks of Chairperson John Larry, who was caught on police body cam threatening a police officer.
Heather Kuhl Demanded the Firing of a Black Officer
But worst of all, Heather Kuhl—who is white—demanded that Black Officer Mensah be fired to help “repair the damage” of Wauwatosa’s “racist history” as she claimed.
Yes, a white city official demanded the firing of a black officer to somehow fix the city's "racist history."
Kuhl sent a letter to the Wauwatosa (WI) Police & Fire Commission demanding the termination of Police Officer Joseph Mensah for these reasons. This is a clear violation of Officer Mensah's Equal Employment Opportunity rights.
Alderperson Kuhl clearly tried to influence the commission with her letter. And Officer Mensah was suspended the next day.
The Wauwatosa Police Officers Association and the National Fraternal Order of Police have spoken out against Kuhl. Officer Mensah has been cleared by the D.A.
Kuhl was outspoken. But now, as the Sentinel reported, "Kuhl did not comment on a reporter's questions on the WPOA's claims."
That should tell you something.
Please sign the petition—and help get Alderperson Heather Kuhl removed.
And please contact the City Administrator to begin proceedings to remove Alderperson Kuhl.
