Earlier this month, Green Bay alderman Amy Kocha asked the city to reconsider providing domestic partnership benefits to homosexual couples. In 2011, the Green Bay Common Council voted down this very same provision.
Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling addresses this issue, “The Green Bay City Council would be well-advised to table this idea. The registry they are trying to use is being challenged in the State Supreme Court and taxpayers shouldn’t have to absorb more costs. Essentially nothing’s changed since the last time the council considered this ill-advised idea.”
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
If you live in the City of Green Bay, call your alderman and mayor. Tell them you do not agree with the provision of domestic partnership benefits and that you do not want the City Council to vote on this issue again.
