Mayor Faulconer adds his voice to the Indiana controversy

Kevin Faulconer

Mayor Faulconer added his voice to the cacophony of political, business and civil rights leaders who have expressed concern over the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act passed in Indiana this week. The mayor has restricted the use of municipal funds for business travel to Indiana. On Monday, Councilman Todd Gloria took the lead by asking Mayor Faulconer to take the action. Gloria said “San Diego should join these other jurisdictions that have demonstrated their leadership for equality and let it be known that San Diego will rise up against these discriminatory practices taking place in our nation.”

Gloria’s request seems to have influenced Mayor Faulconer who now joins mayors from Seattle and San Francisco, as well as governors from Washington and Connecticut. Faulconer said “As a national chair of Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, I believe in equal rights for all. Discrimination has no place in our society. I join Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard in calling for this law to be amended or repealed.”
