Ferndale Human Rights Ordinance would protect all residents

By |2006-10-12T09:00:00-04:00October 12th, 2006|Opinions|

On Nov. 7, the residence of the City of Ferndale will be given the opportunity to vote for a Human Rights Ordinance that will protect the rights of all citizens equally. Anyone can find out more about the ordinance by checking out the informative Web site: I ask that all citizens, of this fine city, make a commitment to get the word out, get registered and not let this fail! This will be the third attempt and it must be a victory. In the past, I truly believe that its defeat was because of the lack of community involvement and commitment. This is unacceptable. We cannot be cavalier; we must get out the vote and step into action. Ferndale, known as the “gay friendliest town” in metro Detroit must flex its muscle. Each person is unique, each person is deserving of dignity and respect. I ask that you, my Ferndale friends, make your voice heard, make your vote count, if not for you, then for your family, your neighbors and your friends.
