Christie: Dignity Prevails

Christie Wood (re: Anti-bias ordinance OK'd 5-1): It was a long, emotional night, and I know that everyone that testified did so with strong conviction. Some of the words were painful to listen to, and some were very inspiring. Human Rights and dignity for all prevailed. KCTFHR stands tall with our City leaders in rejecting hate in our community. The testimony of our City Council was the most compelling and brought tears to many eyes. Kennedy, Goodlander, McEvers, Edinger, and Gookin spoke from their hearts. I am humbled by their courage, and strength to stand up for all citizens. I would like to declare today “Hug your Councilman Day”. I got started a little after 12:00am this morning when I hugged Councilman Gookin. If you see the rest of them today give them a hug and thank them for their service to our community.

Question: Were you surprised by the margin of the vote?
