Staff Senate Updates
At the February 2015 Staff Senate meeting, Dominiece Hoelyfield presented a proposed resolution to Staff Senate regarding the upcoming vote to repeal the Springfield City Council Civil Rights ordinance as it relates to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) population. This issue is on the Springfield ballot in April. If approved, this resolution would make it clear that Staff Senate supports upholding the Springfield City Council Civil Right Ordinance and opposes the repeal of protections extended to any members of our community, especially in relation to the LGBT community.
Staff Senators have been asked to talk with their constituents regarding this issue and will address it again at the Staff Senate meeting on Thursday, March 5th, 2015 at 11:00am in PSU313.
