To the Honorable Larry Waters, Mayor of Sevier County, and to the honorable members of the Sevier County Commission:

Calls have gone out across the country for Commissioner Warren Hurst to resign over his racist and homophobic comments. While that decision is in his hands, we call on you to censure him by resolution of the Sevier County Commission and to update the employment non-discrimination policy of Sevier County Government to protect county employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  We urge you to make this policy change by executive order immediately, to be followed by a confirming ordinance or resolution of the County Commission.

    Enlighten yourself, sir. To die in this much ignorance is a sad thing. The easiest thing to change is your mind, and yours seriously needs changing.

    Any person who speaks as if we are back in the 1920’s deep South has no place in a taxpayer funded job. Remove Hurst now!
