"Whirlpool stooge fires Benton Harbor community role model"
2014-04-20 from Rev Edward Pinkney [blogtalkradio.com/rev-pinkney]:
Major protest Wednesday, 3pm April 23, 2014, at the Boys and Girls Club (Empire Ave., Benton Harbor, Michigan).
John Howard, Director of the Boys and Girls Club in Benton Harbor, was forced to resign after eight years, only because he supported mayoral candidate Marcus Muhammad for Mayor.
John Howard was a role model for the community and ran a successful organization for the children of Benton Harbor. He was given an ultimatum: quit and take a benefit package, or quietly be let go with no severance of any kind.
Boys and Girls Club CEO Brian Sexton who gave Howard the ultimatum.
We are demanding that Brian Sexton resign by May 1. 2014.
We will protest until he resigns.
