He was described as a dedicated public servant, a retired educator who had rolled up his sleeves and worked tirelessly to research complex issues on behalf of his community. A true leader who helped Henry County earn a “Stellar” reputation and a $333,000 prize. A man of Christian faith.
But to others, he was a public embarrassment with an “atrocious” social media history. A racist whose divisive posts on Facebook had given a black eye to the community and sullied the image of an entire county. A dishonest man not worthy of being on the Henry County Council.
