Brevard Ethics signed this petition

We, the undersigned residents of Brevard County, unite across party lines on this clear issue:

Public officials may NOT chill or violate our freedom of speech, especially when criticizing our own government. 

To protect our republic, we must have the moral courage to speak up when constitutional liberties are threatened, especially here in our own community.  None of us should have to play to an elected official's sensitivities or ego to conduct county business, nor should we fear for our our livelihoods when speaking openly and critically about our own government.

Since taking office, Commissioner Bryan Lober has apparently:

Commissioner Lober has caused the County national press coverage / embarrassment and has likely distracted the Commission from Brevard’s more pressing concerns.  How long are we to wait for resolution?  One thing is clear, we CANNOT normalize this behavior.  It cannot be a new County policy due to inaction by those who have a clear duty to protect our rights.

While some call for resignation or removal by the Governor of Florida, others ask that our County Commission censure Commissioner Lober and immediately remove him from the position of Vice Chair.  

For the purpose of this petition, we the undersigned simply and clearly want measures that condemn and cease government violations of our freedom of speech, effectively and immediately.

Fellow residents of Brevard, and especially our neighbors in County Commission District 2, (including most of Cocoa, Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral and parts of Rockledge), join us by adding your signature to this petition by July 8th, 2019.
