I am pleased to write a letter of respect and thanks to the city council in Harrisville City. I recently met with the City Administrator Bill Morris and asked the city to consider banning discrimination in housing and employment based on sexual orientation and gender identity and I was pleasantly surprised by the receptive and professional response that I received from the city.
I am particularly thankful to Pam and Jennifer for their willingness to contribute time and energy into researching how the ordinance would affect the city. I believe that the honorable men and women who serve the city of Harrisville are world-class and deserve much recognition and thanks for the respect and dignity that they have shown members of my community.
When it comes time for any member of my community to purchase a home or seek employment, we will know without a doubt that Harrisville values its citizens and is willing to meet our needs.
