Levi Cox, Anderson’s recently hired street commissioner, has closed his Facebook account after questions about posts he shared in 2019 that could be construed as offensive to immigrants and Muslims. According to the Herald Bulletin, because the posts were shared before he was hired in June, the city will not take any action. When shown copies of the posts from Cox’s social media account recently, Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. said he had not been aware of them. Broderick appointed Cox as street commissioner in June.
