Keith Christensen Voted to Rescind Gay-Protection
Church Makes Historic Move, Urging Members to Attend City Council Meeting
January 24, 1998
It was less than a month old on January 13, when the Salt Lake City Council rescinded the ordance that prohibited discrimination "against an otherwise qualified employee or applicant based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, sexual orientation or disability."
"Having these words does not protect people from discrimination," said Bryce Jolley, a City Councilman who led the effort to repeal. He and Councilmen Carlton Christensen, Keith Christensen and Roger Thompson voted to scrap the fledgling law. Councilwomen Joanne Milner and Deeda Seed and Councilman Tom Rogan voted to keep the law.
As I said in a previous post, Keith Christensen, Rocky Anderson's choice to replace him as mayor, is no progressive.
