President Barack Obama arrives to speak at the University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, in La Crosse, Wis., Thursday, July 2, 2015, about the economy and to promote a proposed Labor Department rule that would make more workers eligible for overtime. “Unbelievable! She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of democracy that was so very hard fought for”, Hagan wrote.
“As an American he is entitled to exercise freedom of speech but no one is entitled to hold elected office, and so the stupid things that we may say or do reflect on whether or not we should be elected officials”, City Counselor Garfield told Fox 21. “Absolutely, I do”, said Bender.
Garfield fears the mayor’s comments will alienate the city’s relationship with other groups and agencies.
“Quite simply, these are really inappropriate comments”, Councilman Graham Garfield said.
The Superior African Heritage Community says they will also participate in an economic boycott of any and all city of Superior and Mayoral sponsored events. The question of his faith has been frequently addressed in the national media, including a PolitiFact report in September that gave a “Pants on Fire” label to statements calling Obama a Muslim. Bender stopped short of calling for the mayor’s job Tuesday, but he said he has heard from several disappointed people.
City council president Tom Fennessey, however, said the Mayor’s comment is personal communication and a personal and has nothing to do with city council or city business. But he said he’s told Hagen he needs “to make this right”. He said Hagen could be subject to a recall election.
