Petition Closed

Mayor Pokorney has been posting hateful comments about the gay community on his personal Facebook profile (a profile viewable to the public). He has referred to same-sex unions as an "abomination" and said this about Washington's recent marriage equality victory: "Washington State. The latest state to transition to Sodam and Gomorrah." Not only this, but he has allowed people to comment in response to his posts, and they have said things like, "Next thing we know wack-o's can marry their dogs."

We cannot allow people like Mr. Pokorney to continue to use their position of power to spread hate. We are calling for his resignation from the position of mayor of La Grande, Oregon.
