This petition had 401 supporters

Currently there is no method of recourse for the Board to expel, suspend or otherwise reprimand a Board Member for public displays of Sexism, Homophobia, Hatred, Body-Shaming and other calls for ethical concerns of the people he or she was elected to represent the interests of.

The link above includes great back story and a great way to reach out personally. Please visit/participate.

Sign if you would like to see The Board create a policy concerning a standard of ethics and effective enforcement standards with which to enforce said policies and procedures.

This petition comes in response to the recent public remarks of Jacob Waller and the defense of those remarks by the Chairman Roger Gradert.
