The Anchorage Assembly voted to ban discrimination based upon sexual orientation this evening at Tuesday Night at the Fights. The ordinance passed 7-4 and is subject to a potential veto from Mayor Dan Sullivan.
Those voting in favor were Patrick Flynn, Harriett Drummond, Matt Claman, Elvi Gray-Jackson, Sheila Selkregg, Mike Gutierrez and Jennifer Johnston.
