Openly trans Georgia city council membert says council wants her out
Claims she was targeted after proposing anti-bais policy
By DYANA BAGBY
Georgia's first openly transgendered elected official, Michelle Bruce, claims she is the target of a campaign by fellow Riverdale City Council members to remove her from office over her gender identity.
Bruce said the effort came after she proposed expanding the city’s non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression earlier this year.
On Monday, a resolution to change the city’s charter section on impeachment of council members was defeated by a 3-2 vote. Bruce said the proposal was an effort to unseat her.
