Uniontown refuses to seat first African-American city treasurer

Under state law, some elected officials are required to be bonded.

Hodge says she was denied a bond after City Council member Martin Gatti made a racist comment to the bonding company.

“This councilman told the bonding people ‘this colored girl’ shouldn’t sit as the treasurer for the city of Uniontown,” said Joel Sansone, Hodge’s attorney.
