Voters in Reno and Saline County are going to be given a chance to prevent city ordinances from going into place in Hutchinson and Salina that will give protections based on sexual preference or “gender identity.” One of the fallacies of both these ordinances is that any man, just by saying he “identifies” as a woman, could access women’s public restrooms and dressing rooms and there’s nothing to stop a pedophile or other sexual predator from using this “protection” to their advantage.
In Hutchinson: Voters will want to vote “NO” on the ordinance to create special protections.
In Salina: At this point, the exact wording of the question is not available, but it is our understanding that Salina voters will want to vote “YES” to the ballot question to prevent the Salina city ordinance from remaining. It was approved and put in place by the city council. Kansas Family Policy Council spearheaded a petition drive to get the question on the ballot asking voters if they would like to repeal the ordinance.
KFL PAC will have our recommendations for these votes on the county voter’s guides.
