The five city commissioners in Henderson, Ky., want to repeal a 1999 ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. Commissioner Robby Mills has asked the city attorney to draft a measure that would repeal the ordinance. Commissioners Russell Sights and Bob Hall said they will support Millss efforts when it comes up for consideration February 27. Final action is expected March 13. The fairness ordinance was adopted 17 months ago. Since then, no complaints of discrimination have been made under the ordinance. While I respect those on this commission who disagree with me on this, I believe this is the moral course of action and this is what the public would have us do, Mills said.
