Thomasville -- A Thomasville resident Ross Thompson filed a complaint against the city of Thomasville with the U. S. Justice Department.

He filed the complaint through the U. S. Attorney's office for the Middle District of Georgia. Thompson alleges that the city is discriminating against him in his efforts to create a public access channel on the city owned cable system.

"I really just want to see CNS which is built with public money, raises revenue for the city and basically falls under public ownership, opened up to more groups in the community," said Thompson.

The Thomasville City Manager Steve Sykes says the city has been working with Thompson over the last year on his request. They have not yet seen the complaint.
