ATLANTA,GA- On the heels of a Gwinnett county commissioner leaving a recent meeting early due to a volley of verbal criticisms by residents, now comes a new saga for Tommy Hunter.
Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed has sent a letter to Hunter’s employer United Consulting demanding a course of remedy. The letter came after Hunter’s social media post that called congressman John Lewis a racist pig. Hunter posted the remark after Lewis said that Donald Trump’s presidency was not legitimate.
The commissioner has come under fire after making the comments, including having an ethics complaint filed against, protesters demanding his resignation and having to be escorted out of a meeting intended to allow him to explain himself to residents.
Reed’s letter to United Consulting said in part:
“The City of Atlanta find Mr. Hunter’s toxic remark to be insulting, reprehensible and unacceptable to the administration.”
After reminding CEO Reza Abree that the City of Atlanta is a client of United Consulting, Reed says in the letter that he wants to know what the company will do to resolve the matter by the close of business on Feb. 27.
