The Wicked Witch of Hillsborough County Part 2

Ronda Storms
On July 7, 2005 I made a journal entry regarding Hillsborough County commisioner Ronda Storms who, in an outrageous act of bigotry, convinced the Hillsborough County Commission to vote to bar county agencies from recognizing or participating in Gay Pride Month or any events that portray gay people in a positive light. Hillsborough County is just beginning to find out the serious impact this could have on Tampa Bay!

The Hillsborough County Commission may ignore how morally repugnant, discrimatory and anti-democratic their actions have been, but they seem to be paying attention to the economic peril caused by their actions. Business leaders, city council members and those involved in wooing major companies and sporting events such as Super Bowl 2009 are worried that the hostile message may chase away those who have a committment to inclusion and diverse employees and customers.

JULY 20th 9am-- Next Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners Meeting.

Is anything going to change at this next meeting? Keep us updated! Besides Ronda Storms, I hope Katherine Harris (Fl)gets what due her when she runs next!
