Letter: Anchorage should rethink laws

AnchorageJune 23, 2013 

I and many other Americans have emailed Sen. Lisa Murkowski to thank her for her recent endorsement of marriage equality. With the help of her sons, their friends and her constituents, the senator has finally stepped into this new century. What’s beyond me is the hubris of the Municipality of Anchorage in believing that it could host the Olympics when current law allows discrimination in housing and employment because of sexual orientation.

Anchorage will never become a world-class city until it too steps into this new century.
