AWARD: What’s Unfair to All is Charity and Goodwill To Council
The unprecedented rescission of Porterville’s June 2013 Pride Month Proclamation was not enough for either Council or the Bible-waving crowd that turned out repeatedly during June and July. In parallel to Brian Ward’s rescission motion, Greg Shelton carried a mean-spirited retroactive Replacement Resolution.
Even though July was already more than half over, by the same bloc 3-2 vote, June was retroactively declared a month of “Charity and Goodwill for All”.
The irony was entirely missed by Council and its fans.
