Racially offensive fliers target Metro councilwoman

July 11, 2007
During the past two weeks, Fairdale residents have found fliers using racially offensive language mailed to their homes or tossed on their lawns and driveways.The fliers target Metro Councilwoman Vicki Welch, who represents the Fairdale area, and accuse Welch of supporting public housing in Fairdale.
     In addition to racial slurs, the fliers show Welch's photo and list her home address and phone number. They encourage residents to let Welch know that they do not support "rising crime" in the area caused by "illegal aliens" and African Americans.
