Phil Gordon on Civil Rights



Against ban of same-sex marriage; supports equal benefits

Phil Gordon is opposing an Arizona constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, saying its prohibition of domestic-partner benefits could hurt the city's ability to recruit talented employees. Gordon said Tuesday that if the city of Phoenix cannot offer health insurance to the domestic partners of its employees, it could jeopardize the city's "ability to compete against the private sector or other cities" as the city grows. Phoenix provides the benefit to 176 employees.
