A GUARDIAN reader sent us this photo over the weekend of an anti-Trump sticker displayed on the dashboard of a city vehicle. STICKER SHOCK? The photo is circulating on conservative social media and has outraged some folks.
We sent it to the office of Mayor Lauren McLean. The mayor confirmed early Monday they had already received a complaint and were working on correcting the situation. Here is their statement:
“…we do not allow employees to place their own stickers on City-owned vehicles, including police or parking vehicles.
This sticker is a violation of employee policy and the standards of conduct for staff.
Our employees are advised upon their hiring of all the guidelines that govern the use of company-owned vehicles. Each employee is responsible for the company-owned vehicle they check out. I have notified Code Compliance and Community Resources Mgr. Tyler Johnson about this situation. He is currently working with the appropriate supervisor of the involved employee. He will be reminding staff that this sort of behavior will not be tolerated. I am also working with the team to have refresher training throughout the year to ensure this will not happen again.”
