LBGT Community Not Happy With Supervisors Vote

Members of the local LGBT community are disappointed by the failed vote by the Albemarle Supervisors to recognized Pride Festival Day. Charlottesville City Council issued a proclamation officially recognizing September 14 as Pride Festival Day. The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors discussed a motion to support a similar resolution and it failed on a 3-3 vote. (Listen to Amy Sarah Marshall, President of the Charlottesville Pride Community Network) The Charlottesville Pride organization is telling county residents write the Board of Supervisors with their response the decision.
