VAYD President Sean Holihan On Cooch's "War" Against State Colleges, Universities

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Sean Holihan writes.
Attorney General Ken Cucinnelli has gone after rules at our Universities protecting Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender employees. In spite of people from both sides of the aisle condemning Cucinelli's persecution of gays in state employment, Governor McDonnell and elected Republicans have backed Cuccinelli's decision. Enough is enough. Governor McDonnell is being anti-equality and anti-jobs. He is breaking his campaign promises: to not discriminate, to bring high quality jobs to Virginia, and to do what's best for Virginia's schools. Tell Governor McDonnell to live up to his word, to stop bashing gay and lesbian Virginians, to stop scaring away good jobs and top talent. Tell Governor McDonnell to lead his party out of the wilderness and into the 21st Century by passing non-discrimination protections for state employees.
I couldn't agree more, got git'm Sean!
