Subject: Re: Request for demand of apology to Father Nathan Monk

To: Honorable Mayor Hayward and Honorable City Council Members

On December 17, 2011 I sent an email to City Council President Sam Hall and copied all of you (see emails below). As of this date Mr. Hall has not officially apologize to Father Nathan Monk in a public manner and in a written letter. The people still have not been assured that the LeRoy Boyd Open Forum will continue to be a place where they can bring their concerns, ideas, demands, and grievances before their government. Therefore I hereby request that the members of the City Council at the January 12th, 2012 meeting remove Mr. Hall as President of the City Council and appoint Mr. John Jerralds as Council President. As all of you know Mr. Jerralds was the other nominated City Council member who was being considered as President in your last election for the position. The members of my Union support this along with thousands of citizens in Pensacola and even beyond our community.

I trust that in the best interest of our city and our local government this action will occur and allow the citizens to move forward and enjoy their first amendment rights. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
