County Judge Tom Head defended on Friday potentially offensive posters that commissioners removed from a public bulletin board he maintained in the courthouse.
Lubbock County Commissioners removed this poster Friday from a public bulletin board maintained by County Judge Tom Head. He intended the posters, including one that contained racially stereotyped descriptions of Obama supporters, to spark conversation about modern issues, he said.
“Nobody’s ever said anything to me, personally,” Head said. “Apparently it’s performing its task now, because somebody got emotional about it.”
Commissioners removed the posters, saying the county faced bigger issues and did not need a new distraction.
