Bre G started this petition to Town of Louisburg

To the Town of Louisburg,

I would like to call attention to the deplorable and disturbing comments made by one of your employees, Lin Bennett. He has taken to social media, Facebook, to call the peaceful protest that occurred two consecutive days in a row “ghetto” which is offensive and belittling. The verbiage that was used is alarming, especially since 98% of the protesters were Black. It is not up to me to allude, but others that saw the post also thought that Mr. Bennett equated “ghetto” to black. As an employee of the Town of Louisburg he has a greater responsibility to be a positive representation of Louisburg and our values. His behavior does not align with this nor does his comment adhere to the diversity in this town.


As a long time resident of Franklin County, I know that the Town of Louisburg does not stand for or support this uninformed and ignorant behavior Mr. Bennett has displayed. I encourage you all to hold him accountable for his actions.


I’m urging that immediate action be taken and that Lin Bennett’s offer of employment immediately be rescinded. This is an opportunity to follow through with Franklin County’s mission statement that your employees believe in “equitable treatment for all individuals regardless of circumstances”.
