Progressive Leadership on Equality Action
During a time when state legislators are trying to change North Carolina’s Constitution to discriminate against many of our citizens, I am proud that our community is standing up for equality. I support equal rights for all our citizens.
For the past eight years I have been fortunate to have the chance to serve on the Asheville City Council.
Asheville has advocated for building a safe, inclusive and respectful community.
- Our City Council extended equal workplace rights so that all our public employees receive the same benefits for doing their job, regardless of sexual orientation. This is a common practice amongst private sector employers but only a handful of local governments in North Carolina have taken this step.
