City Man Calls For Review Of MCAD After Chairman Abruptly Leaves
Julian Tynes is out as Chairman of the Mass. Commission Against Discrimination.
Tynes had recently made appearances in New Bedford, hearing an appeal in December on a ruling he made in a case involving a memorial to four black Revolutionary War soldiers from Plymouth. In January, Tynes was the keynote speaker for a program honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Eddie Johnson of New Bedford felt it was wrong that Tynes heard the appeal of the Plymouth case he had already decided, and filed a complaint with the Governor's Office.
Johnson beleives Tynes was forced out, and now that he's gone, Johnson wants the Governor to take a hard look at M-C-A-D....
An administrative assistant for M-C-A-D says Tynes' abrupt departure was a surprize to everyone in the office.
