FDL City Council Says “NO” to “Gender Identity” Ordinance; Manning Lone “Yea” Vote

From the Fond du lac Reporter:

A standing-room-only crowd packed the Legislative Chamber in the City County Government Building Monday night as the Fond du Lac City Council brought a controversial non-discrimination proposal back for a vote.

After listening to some 70 people comment on the proposal to prohibit discrimination on the basis of “gender identity or expression,” Council voted 5-1 against the proposal with Dan Manning casting the lone dissenting vote. Councilwoman Catherine Block abstained from the ballot.
