Same-sex benefits for city workers?

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 3:19 PM

Maybe Bill James will show up at a City Council meeting to complain. Just a week after County Commissioner James made an ass of himself — *there’s a shock — during debate over the new county policy offering same-sex partner benefits, he’s being given another chance to shine. Mayor Foxx has let it be known that the City Council will soon begin discussing a similar policy for city employees, probably as early as next month.

It’s unclear at this time whether the council will also discuss benefits for heterosexual domestic partners, but we certainly hope they will, considering that such a policy, combined with same-sex partner benefits, would, you know, reflect present-day reality and all. Seriously, don’t put it past James to show up before City Council to argue that public policy should be a reflection of his own archaic, *Leave It To Beaver-based views. It ‘d be quite a show.
