HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - A rally was held ahead of the Henrietta town board meeting Wednesday, where protesters called for the resignation of Supervisor Jack Moore.
Protesters carried signs reading "Hit the Road, Jack" as the song played from speakers behind them.
The rally was in response to a number of EEOC complaints that were released last week, accusing Supervisor Moore of making sexist and racist comments.
Later, during the meeting, people spoke to the town board, voicing their concerns over the complaints. There were also people at the meeting, speaking in support of the supervisor.
One of the people speaking in support of Supervisor Moore, was Patrick Herman, president of the Town of Henrietta Roadrunner’s Association Union. He noted that earlier in the day, 82% of the rank and file backed Moore in a vote of confidence.
Supervisor Moore did not provide comment at the meeting.
Moore and the town attorney say they will fight the allegations should they wind up in court. That's a prospect at least one taxpayer noted, could cost the town a lot of money.
Moore is up for re-election next month. His Democratic opponent is Steve Schultz.
