G.I. (NE) city council adopts gay-rights measure

Source: Omaha World Herald-AP

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — The Grand Island City Council has overridden a mayoral veto and enacted city employment protection for gay, bisexual and transgender people.

The ordinance change adds protection to only city policies and doesn’t affect any other employer in the south-central Nebraska community.

The proposal passed on a 6-4 vote Tuesday night. Then the council voted 8-2 to override a veto by Mayor Jay Vavricek, who said he saw the ordinance change as symbolic.

1. Yay!

About 20 miles from where I grew up.

And, incidentally, my pastor in the late 60s/early 70s in a small town ~30 miles east of there was openly gay.
