The Mick begs off
This weekend's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered & Intersex Pride Parade and Festival is the nineteenth in Oklahoma City, and it's always something to see.
Something I saw perplexed me. On page 4 of Hard News Online's Pride Guide (pdf version here), there are welcome letters from Jim Roth (District 1 County Commissioner), John Whetsel (County Sheriff), Sam Bowman (Council Ward 2) and Ann Simank (Council Ward 6). Conspicuously absent: Mayor Cornett. Says an Editor's Note:
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett did not respond to Hard News Online’s request for a welcome letter to be included in this Pride Guide.
Not even a perfunctory "Welcome to the city, and please don't litter." Sheesh. Hizzoner must really be sweating that Congressional primary.Posted at 9:13 AM to City Scene
