The Resignation of Charlottesville, VA Councillor Wes Bellamy
This petition had 108 supporters
This is an unusual and unprofessional petition. It should be abundantly clear I am unhappy with the path we have had to choose to resolve the matter especially it is a personal matter.
I contend since all other options have been exhausted there was little choice.
Rather than blindly signing I insist on honesty and ask you read and question anything you might not understand. If you are from Virginia or a frequent visitor to the “Old Dominion” we would appreciate your support. Otherwise if you are an involved citizen again please consider lending your support.
What has transpired is a member of Board of Education from Charlottesville, Virginia was found to have had an arrest record along with making racial, homophobic and hate filled tweets. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe terminated the individuals’ involvement with State duties. However the City of Charlottesville has allowed the individual to continue official duties. WE ARE DEMANDING HIS RESIGNATION!
If you take a moment and Google “…official makes racist tweets…” you will find hundreds of example of similar cases with one noticeable difference in the other cases the media, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) all demanded their resignations and got them.
We are asking if as a responsible citizen you believe our officials should be unbiased, understanding and compassionate leaders then you agree that individuals who harbor hate and racism have no place in government. Here you have an individual who has been documented making racist homophobic comments to others.
Please consider adding your signature recommending Charlottesville officials along with responsible media outlets and any group whose mission is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination step forward to ensure this individual is removed from Government and positions of authority.
