The Knox County Commission did not take up an anti-marriage equality resolution tonight. Commissioners had been urged to do so by a man identified as Mark Rivera. But when he was called on speak on Monday night, he failed to show up.
In contrast, many in red were in the chamber to show their opposition to any anti-marriage equality resolution. 6 people spoke against such a measure including Gwen Schablik, David Payne, and former State Rep. Gloria Johnson.
TEP is grateful to all who showed up to oppose discrimination tonight and we are grateful to the Knox County Commission for not taking up the resolution.
