Steve Stanton's appeal fails

Steve Stanton's appeal to the City Commission of Largo, FL has failed. The council maintained their original vote of 5-2, with Mayor Pat Gerard and Commissioner Rodney Woods opposing the commission's vindictive hate-mongering.

We are appalled at the Commission's decision. Though Largo's city motto is 'City of Progress,' we join with our allies at Equality Florida in calling Largo, the 'City of Regress.'

We hope that the City Commission's decision only serves to educate Americans about the need for workplace discrimination legislation that protects GLBT employees. Stanton will be deciding whether to take legal action in the next week or so.

  • I am running against one of the commissioners that voted to dismiss Steve Stanton. I was compelled to run because I believe Steve's Stanton's treatment was unfair. Please visit www.John4Largo.com and support my candidacy. Thank you!
