Demand Commissioner Tommy Hunter Resign
Greetings Concerned Citizens,
As concerned citizens of Gwinnett County, we have reviewed the comments on the public personal Facebook page of Gwinnett County District 3 Commissioner, Tommy Hunter. We are appalled by the inappropriate messages posted there and find his behavior is inappropriate, disappointing and is not demonstrative of community leadership. In fact, it demonstrates poor judgment and a lack of self-control necessary to represent his particularly diverse constituents, especially those that do not agree with his ideals. Finally, and most importantly, he has violated the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Code of Ethics, Section 60-26.5, Ethical Standards for Government Service, item (k), which states “Never engage in conduct which is unbecoming to a member or which constitutes a breach of public trust.”
Though his constituents reside in District 3, his behavior has caused national embarrassment for our entire county. As a commissioner, he represents all of Gwinnett County not just his constituents in District 3. His divisive comments are currently circulating in national news which can negatively impact our community’s reputation and ultimately, our county’s economic growth and sustainability.
As a result of his actions, we are requesting that you sign this petition requesting the immediate resignation of Gwinnett County Commissioner Tommy Hunter. His xenophobic remarks are indefensible.
Annie Davis, President
Gwinnett County Alumnae Chapter
