Gender Identity And Expression Discrimination Ordinance Dropped From Council Agenda


The Fond du Lac City Council won’t be taking up an amendment to the housing discrimination ordinance after all Wednesday night. City Council President Sam Meyer says they are dropping the Gender Identity and Expression discrimination ordinance. He issued a statement saying:

“Based on feedback from constituents, there are many questions and concerns regarding the proposed ordinance change as it relates to gender identity and expression. Due to this feedback, the initiator has withdrawn his proposal at this time. It will not be considered at this Wednesday's City Council meeting. We wanted to pass the word so members of the public were aware it will not be on the agenda.” City Councilman Dan Manning had proposed the ordinance amendment.

The city manager has damaged his reputation by supporting an ordinance that put women and children at risk. We citizens will remember this. The reason this was pulled is because of the overhelming opposition to the ordinance revision to set up a special class of citizen that would have had many safety concerns in FDL. Thank you citizens for having the courage for standing up and being heard.

I'm pretty sure that our "religious leaders" had more than their share of stirring up crazy talk against this proposal.
