Councilmember Glass Denounces Hateful Message

On Feb.23 the Montgomery County Council convened to discuss the adoption of a resolution to combat hate, bigotry, and violence.

The resolution was made to promote inclusiveness and affirm the long-standing commitment the county has to ensuring all members of the community are protected from harmful, and hateful actions or speech.

Councilmember Evan Glass led the meeting, afterwards tweeting the resolutions details and promise to the community. Shortly after, Glass received an anonymous message from a “concerned citizen” account which included homophobic and bigoted language.

Glass responded to the tweet publicly, denouncing it and proving it to be an example of the kind of hate that will not be tolerated within the Montgomery County community.
