past president of nat'l league of cities supports stanton

More news on the Stanton front, this time via SaveStanton.com. SteveStanton.com is an impromptu effort of people all united to stand with Steve, and have really been on the front-lines of the grassroots effort to support Stanton.

The immediate past President of the National League of Cities, James Hunt expressed his support for Steve Stanton as he goes through this difficult and painful transition. The full text of what James Hunt said is beneath the fold.
I fully support the efforts of Steve Stanton to continue in the profession that he has dedicated much of his life...I applaud Steve Stanton's courage.

As I have continued on the journey to build a more inclusive country, I am amazed at the fear that exists in people. We seem to want to return to an era in America that in many ways never existed. The white picket fences and neat little houses disguised a frightening reality for many. Sadly, many don’t want to sit at the table and discuss these very real issues. While the Steve Stanton case could have been an opportunity for community growth and maturity, it was seized upon by community fear.

I have a very real belief that community is the answer and that the Steve Stanton case is a signpost along the road to greater understanding. I trust that this is the beginning of a journey and not the end of a career.

  • I believe what there needs to be is further education regarding this issue. Most do not understand or know what transsexuality is all about, they think it is deviant behavior. I have dedicated myself to provide education, by either producing videos, seminars, and being on talks shows. Here is my latest video.


    It is called The Ultimate Creation.
