Anti-Discrimination Ordinance: Expect Movement

On my way back from that other engagement, I ran into County Councilman Jim Burn. Since he mentioned his wife got a kick out of the last Mr. Burns photo we ran in his honor, here's another.

I asked Mr. Burn what is up with 4201-08.

"Nothin'," he said flatly. "In fact, we're supposed to talk about that tomorrow."

He pointed out that it has been roughly four weeks since the largest public hearing in the history of the Gold Room was held on that topic, and the ordinance subsequently tabled for discussions.

"If there's a language problem," he said, his eyes searching to the left and right, "where is it?" He indicated that one way or another it's time to start moving forward. He remains a co-sponsor of the legislation.

Tuesday's meeting is at 5:00 PM and is apparently being webcast as usual.
