Alderman Angie Hedberg Ouster Petition

This petition had 43 supporters

We, the undersigned citizens of the City of Hendersonville, are respectfully and emphatically calling for the removal of Angie Hedberg from the office of Alderman Ward 3 of the City of Hendersonville. Our reasons for this request are as follows:
Since her election in November 2016, Mrs. Hedberg has clearly demonstrated a willful disregard for laws regarding public safety, particularly laws related to the operation of a motor vehicle, and we feel she is incapable of safely driving on any road or highway.
Mrs. Hedberg has in fact violated public safety laws by leaving the scene of an accident, being arrested for driving under the influence on two separate occasions, and refusing toxicology testing of her blood after these arrests.
It is important to note that Tennessee statute T.C.A. § 8-47-101 provides as a ground for removal of a public official from office if they are intoxicated in public, which Mrs. Hedberg has done.
Mrs. Hedberg has damaged the reputation of the Board of Mayor and Alderman by her disregard of the public’s safety.
Further, Mrs. Hedberg was absent for two votes of significant importance on the City of Hendersonville’s $50 million annual budget, as well as other BOMA meetings, in which she committed to being a present representative for the citizens she was elected to represent.
As an Alderman, because Mrs. Hedberg helps formulate policy and regulations that impacts the law enforcement personnel of the City of Hendersonville, she should command the respect of all citizens and law enforcement professionals as someone who respects and complies with all laws and ordinances of our city and state. Mrs. Hedberg has lost the respect and dignity that is necessary to fulfill her role as Alderman, and she should therefore no longer be allowed to serve this great city. As citizens of the City of Hendersonville, we are entitled to effective, respectable, and uninterrupted representation of our interests to its fullest extent.
