COLUMBUS COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - District Attorney Jon David has sent a letter to Columbus County Sheriff Jody Greene requesting his resignation after audio recordings of Greene making racist remarks in a telephone conversations were made public.

David confirmed to WECT that he sent the letter to Greene on Monday, but said he would have no further comment.

WECT obtained a copy of David’s letter, which said, “The widespread public dissemination of these comments has resulted in the loss of confidence, trust, and respect for this high office by a significant number of the residents of Columbus County.” David’s letter to Greene went on to say, “My hope is that you will recognize the harm that your statements have caused and that you will make the honorable decision to resign.”

WECT reached out to Greene but we were unable to make contact.
