Attend Ordinance Hearing #4, Tues. 6/23

Since Assembly Chair Debbie Ossiander has decided to keep the public hearing open indefinitely, we are asking that all supporters of equality attend the Assembly meeting this Tuesday, June 23rd, and sign up to register your support for equality if you haven't already. Recruit your friends, your family, your neighbors, and your co-workers and have them sign up, too. 

We know that our opponents do not represent the majority of Anchorage citizens and we need to show our Assembly members, Acting Mayor Claman, and Mayor-Elect Dan Sullivan that the vocal minority that is opposed to this ordinance is not a true reflection of our community. The meeting starts at 5:00 pm, but as usual, we need to pack the Assembly chambers with our supporters so please arrive early if possible. The Chamber doors are usually unlocked at 3 pm. 

Opponents of equality want to push a vote to July in hopes that Dan Sullivan will veto any ordinance that gets passed. We say, let them do it! Matt Claman's return to the Assembly will just give us one more vote for equality and increase our chances of gaining enough votes to override any veto. 

Change is never easy, but this fight is not over. We are willing to bring our case to Acting Mayor Claman, we are willing to bring the case to Mayor-Elect Dan Sullivan, and we are willing to bring our case to the people of Anchorage.

Remember, Equality Works.

I'm going to try to make it over there again tomorrow in support. In the meantime, I have posted some photos of Saturday's parade at my website here: We had a really great time.

The "cut and paste" didn't pick up the whole link. Go here: and then click on the "Anchorage Pridefest 2009" link. Sorry about that.
