Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere

GALA North Texas is organizing a wear red to City Hall night to support the Plano Equal Rights Ordinance.

On Monday, Feb. 23, Plano City Council could announce if Plano Citizens United collected enough valid signatures to put the ordinance on the ballot.

Plano City Hall is at 1520 K Ave., Plano. Meetings start at 7 p.m. GALA suggests arriving at 6 p.m. because of the expected large turnout.

GALA president Bob Shimmin wrote, “We who support the Equal Rights Policy need to be there to support this measure which unfortunately is being challenged by the bigotry of Plano Citizens United. We need to be there to support our wonderful mayor, who has fought hard for this policy which extends anti-discrimination measures to prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation, U.S. military/veteran status if not dishonorably discharged, gender identity, and genetic information in addition to other groups. The policy also extended the areas in which these measures take effect in.”
