Mike Rawlings on Civil Rights

 

 


Refused "Mayors for the Freedom to Marry" petition

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has signed onto the "Mayors for the Freedom to Marry" effort. Houston's Annise Parker had previously joined the effort, serving as co-chair. So that's 3 Texas Mayors down, 1,212 to go.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings is still refusing to sign onto the pledge, despite a petition with 253 signatures and promises of protests at his upcoming public events.

The group has also added two new co-chairs, San Diego's Jerry Sanders and Boston's Thomas Menino; with New York's Michael Bloomberg, L.A.'s Antonio Villaraigosa and Houston's own Annise Parker. The five-co-chairs issued the following statement: Source: Dallas Voice, "Mayors for the Freedom to Marry" , Jan 20, 2012

Require city contractors to offer domestic partner benefits

Rawlings said Tuesday that he now supports requiring major city contractors to offer domestic partner benefits. Rawlings previously said he was opposed to requiring contractors to offer domestic partner benefits.
