MAYOR OF LANCASTER MUST RESIGN IMMEDIATELY

This petition had 99 supporters


The Mayor of Lancaster, California (Rex Parris) has gone too far.

Below you will see the mailer he sent out to hundreds of voters in regard to City Council Candidate Johnathan Ervin. In it, he attacks the personal character of Mr. Ervin, focusing on his race to name him the "Gang Candidate" and accuse him of simply looking to be the mole for gangs in the City of Lancaster.

And as if racially driven accusations were not wrong enough, these attacks have a motivation that makes them even more horrendous! You see, what Mayor Parris is afraid of, is that the people of Lancaster will vote for someone with 17 years of service to their country.

That's right- they wanted to defame Johnathan Ervin BECAUSE HE IS A UNITED STATES VETERAN!!! Johnathan has spent 17 years serving in the uniform of the United States Air Force. He is still serving as a reservist and has climbed to the rank of E-7, which is only two ranks down from the top of the enlisted promotion ladder. He has leadership experience a non-veteran like the Mayor would be right to find intimidating!

So what do you do when someone you do not want serving with you on the City Council has a spotless reputation like Veteran Johnathan Ervin? If you're Mayor Rex Parris, you pick on the color of his skin and try to defame his character.

We want to send this message to the Mayor and copy the City Clerk and Vice Mayor:

Considering the many needs of Veterans everywhere, and how important it is to fulfill those needs, there is not any room in leadership positions within the government for people who would go to such efforts to defame the service of a US Veteran.

WE THE VETERANS AND SUPPORTERS OF VETERANS UNDERSIGNED CALL FOR THE IMMEDIATE RESIGNATION OF R. REX PARRIS AS MAYOR OF THE CITY OF LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA.

ATTACKING THE SERVICE OF A UNITED STATES VETERAN WITHOUT FACTUAL ACCUSATIONS OR TRUE EVIDENCE OF YOUR ALLEGATIONS AND ALLOWING THEM TO BE DRIVEN BY RACIALLY-MOTIVATED MEANS MAKES YOU UNFIT TO SERVE.
