OWENSBORO, Ky. — Officials in Daviess County, Ky. told a local newspaper that there weren’t the votes to pass a fairness ordinance.
A fairness ordinance would add LGBTQ to the local non-discrimination laws. At least 14 cities in the state have passed fairness ordinances in the past few years. One of the most recent was the western Kentucky city of Henderson, in the county just next door to Daviess County.
The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reported that commissioners Charlie Castlen, George Wathen and Mike Koger all said on Monday that they will not vote in favor of a Fairness Ordinance.
