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. 

Will you sign?

    As someone who frequently travels to and vacations in Sevier County, I am asking for the resignation of a commissioner that uses his platform to spew his very disturbing views..

    I support this petition to censure Com. Hurst. Once again, Tennessee has made national news with its ability to spew hate. This behavior is not acceptable.
