Manhattan Mayor Supports Adding Sexual Orientation to City's Policy

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The mayor of Manhattan says she supports adding sexual orientation as a protected class to the city's anti-discrimination hiring policy.  Mayor Karen McCulloh told the city commission this week that adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes would be a positive for many citizens.  The Manhattan Mercury reports that Commissioner Usha Reddi noted other major groups in Manhattan, such as Fort Riley, the Manhattan-Ogden School District and Kansas State University already have sexual orientation as a protected class in their hiring policies.  Commissioner Mike Dodson said he wants to know more about any potential legal ramifications before amending the policy.  And Commissioner Wynn Butler said he would like to see evidence that a problem existed.
