Loffler Companies Media Statement Regarding Offensive Tweets Made to President Obama on May 21, 2015
Released to media on May 22, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
We want to be clear and direct. The Twitter post to President Obama’s personal account by a Jeff Gullickson of Minneapolis is not the same Jeff Gullickson who is employed by Loffler Companies. The views expressed in the post in no way reflect the views, practices and values of Loffler Companies of Bloomington, MN, nor our employee Jeff Gullickson. Our clear knowledge of Jeff and research clearly demonstrates that the in question racist Tweet is by another person of the same name and not our employee. There is no excuse for the hateful statements that have been made and we absolutely condemn them.
Loffler Companies hires, evaluates and terminates employees based on our Core Values of Integrity, Professionalism, Trustworthiness and Positive Attitude and does not tolerate verbal or written statements by employees discriminating on the grounds of race, color, religion, age, nationality, social or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, pregnancy, political affiliation, disability or veteran status.
