Originally published at Facebook. See also here. For those just tuning in, I’m running for mayor of New Albany as an independent candidate. Because the upcoming primary is party-centric, you won’t see my name then. But you will in November.
Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration diktat?
It’s what occurs in one-party states. It is bad law, a regrettable over-reach, a human rights disaster, and a body blow to the state’s business climate — all of these negative aspects, and yet the saddest part of it might be the grubby, small-minded pettiness of the politics involved, and how, with a stroke of his gilded crayon, Mike Pence deposits this bundle of divisive bile at all our front doors, to foul our communities.
For the record, as a prospective candidate for mayor of this city, running as an independent, I oppose RFRA (SB/HB 101).
I’d like to hear from all the candidates irrespective of party affiliation. Some already have, among them Al Knable, Hannegan Roseberry, Gregg Phipps, Brad Bell, Dustin Collins and Adam Keeler — all against RFRA — and Noah McCourt, in favor. Am I missing anyone? Apologies if I have, and please provide corrections in the comment section.
