Atlanta fire chief suspended for authoring Christian book that denounces homosexuality

City Councilman Alex Wan said in a statement that he supports the administration’s decision.

“[Mr. Cochran’s] actions made it a difficult work environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees within the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department,” he said Tuesday. “This sends a strong message to employees about how much we value diversity and how we adhere to a non-discriminatory environment.”
