Members of the Carrollton Project, an LGBT equality group, will bid farewell to gay-friendly Mayor Becky Miller at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. According to an e-mail from Bob McCranie, founder of the Carrollton Project, Miller plans to ask council members to stress diversity as they move forward and has invited like-minded folks to attend in a show of support.
In case you missed it, Miller was defeated by former City Councilman Ron Branson in the May 10 election after The Dallas Morning News published a story that called into question statements she’s made about her past. Miller became the first suburban mayor to ride in Dallas’ gay Pride parade in 2006. Branson has criticized Miller’s appearance in the parade, and he told Dallas Voice that homosexuality is “just not a lifestyle that I endorse.”
Tuesday’s City Council meeting is at 7 p.m. at City Hall and will be followed by the Carrollton Project’s regular monthly meeting at 7:45 at Nico’s restaurant. For more info, e-mail email@example.com.
