Shawn Hunter

Peacemakers founder Shawn Hunter took his complaint about developer and council member John Garland to this afternoon’s City Council meeting – alleging that Garland has indulged in unethical and perhaps criminal behavior in his attempts to buy up properties on 11th Street northwest. Hunter says he has filed a complaint with the Commonwealth’s Attorney office; based on that, City Attorney Dan Callahan told Mayor Sherman Lea that Council should not pursue the matter further until that office evaluates the complaint.
