Stand up for the rights of rental property owners
Dear Mayor Brown and Members of the City Council in Grand Forks:
We as citizens and/or rental property owners in Grand Forks would like to express our opposition to the ordinance prohibiting housing discrimination as it relates to sexual orientation and gender identity. We want you to know that many people in Grand Forks believe that an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity (if different from a person's biological makeup) is a choice, not genetic, and that such a law would be an infringement upon some individuals' freedom of conscience and/or religious practices.
Please understand that this proposed ordinance was previously rejected by the legislature in the State of North Dakota. If this ordinance comes up for further discussion in the City Council of Grand Forks, we whose names are on the list below would urge you to vote against such an ordinance in the city of Grand Forks.
