Ethics board got it right

I am writing to express support for the Birmingham Ethics Board's unanimous decision on November 16, 2021 that a recent email from commissioner Clinton Baller did not contain anti-Semitic tropes.

I do not believe that commissioner Baller's comments were motivated by anti-Semitism, and I think the city should now consider the matter closed and move forward.
