P-G: Wery won’t step down after exchange regarding Muslim student group
Green Bay Alderman Chris Wery says he won’t resign his post in the wake of controversy over a well-publicized email exchange he had with UW-Green Bay alumna Heba Mohammad. As we told you here previously, Wery has come under fire for responding to Mohammad’s inquiry about Election Day bus service by questioning the Muslim Student Organization she founded and asking whether she condemns Islamic terrorism. The exchange went viral on social media and quickly made local and even national news earlier in the week. City Council president Tom DeWane told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that Wery’s line of questioning was “unfortunate” but that he won’t push for the alderman to step down or be disciplined by the council. DeWane also told the newspaper he believes Wery will be meeting with Muslim Student Association representatives regarding the situation. You can read the full story.
