Cheyenne Mayor Urges Passage of Non-Discrimination Employment Law
Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr announced Tuesday that the city has added both gender identity and sexual preference in its statement of non-discrimination for employment.
Orr said in her second state of the city address that she believes Cheyenne can and should be an employer of choice.
"When we talk about wanting a workforce in our community in which wages are paid that are fair and that jobs can be carried out free of harassment and discrimination, I believe that the city should lead by example," said Orr.
"I urge our state legislators to pass statewide non-discrimination employment legislation," she added.
Lawmakers have considered several non-discrimination bills in recent years, but none have received final approval.
