LGBT activists left a very public message for Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler outside of City Hall last night.
Plastered onto the side of a truck was a photo of Seiler with the words “Marriage Equality for ALL! But Ft. Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler Says NO! Join The Fight!” and then directed folks to a website GetInvolvedInFortLauderdale.com.
"A Mayor needs to be a Mayor for ALL constituents. After 6 years as Mayor, Seiler has done little to make Fort Lauderdale a more inclusive and welcoming ‘All American City,’ especially for gays and lesbians. Not only did he vote against marriage equality, he has failed to mandate comprehensive LGBT non-discrimination policies for vendors doing business with the City,” said Fort Lauderdale business owner, retired Air Force Lt. Colonel and former Fort Lauderdale Mayoral Candidate Earl Rynerson. “Dozens of mayors, in Florida cities large and small, are proactively supporting marriage equality and are putting pressure on Tallahassee to do the same. I believe it is important for Fort Lauderdale residents to understand that Jack Seiler is not among them.”
