From the article:Rasmussen, who is gay, questioned whether the city should spend public money to lower some people's federal tax bill......Council President Sally Clark, who is also gay, said she first raised the issue in 2007 at the request of a lesbian labor activist and another gay city employee.I really had no idea we had two gay city council members. I think it is pretty cool that that type of thing doesn't even come up in normal politics. Obviously, they are openly gay, but it wasn't considered remarkable enough to mention. That's kind of neat. We also were the first in the nation to legalize gay marriage by citizen initiative and we legalized pot as well, again by citizen initiative.Washington is a pretty great state.
