I believe every person should have equal rights under the law.
No person should make less money, be denied government services, pay more for healthcare, lose a job, be denied housing, or face discrimination in the workplace or at a place of business because of their gender, race, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.
I strongly support the right of any person to follow and practice their religion in whatever way they choose, unless it infringes on another person’s civil rights.
I support the passage of the Ohio Fairness Act (House Bill 369), which would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Enacting that into law is the right thing to do. It will also help prevent Ohio from losing jobs to other states that already have such protections.
