Pro-LGBT Anti-Discrimination Ordinance Upheld in Kalamazoo
November 3, 2009
VICTORY! From an email to volunteers on the One Kalamazoo campaign, campaign manager Jon Hoadley declared victory in their effort to keep a LGBT inclusive non-discrimination ordinance on the books:
“Our campaign started with a very basic idea, and today voters confirmed that we are One Kalamazoo,” said Campaign Manager, Jon Hoadley. With only absentee ballots outstanding, 65 percent of Kalamazoo voters have approved Ordinance 1856 by a vote of 6,463 to 3,527, adding protections for gay and transgender people to the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance. This margin is larger than the number of outstanding absentee ballots that are currently being counted.
