Rep. Whiteford calls for transparency surrounding civil rights director’s comments

Categories: Whiteford News

State Rep. Mary Whiteford today issued the following statement calling for transparency regarding inappropriate comments made by Michigan Department of Civil Rights Director Agustin Arbulu:

“The lack of transparency surrounding the investigation into Director Arbulu’s transgressions reflects poorly on the Michigan Civil Rights Commission and undermines the public’s trust in the department. The people of Michigan deserve better, especially from the agency tasked with fighting against discrimination in Michigan. If the Michigan Civil Rights Commission is going to give Arbulu a slap on the wrist and allow him to continue leading the department after what sounds like a serious offense, they owe the public a thorough explanation.”
