Mary Throne on Civil Rights
Stood alone in sole support of LGBTQ discrimination ban
After emotional testimony in support and condemnation the Jackson Town Council reaffirmed its unanimous support for an LGBTQ discrimination ban. The ban would criminalize discrimination based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
Kathy Russell spoke on behalf of the Wyoming Republican Party to urge the council to rely on existing legislation in matters of discrimination. Most candidates made the same argument. Just one, Democrat Mary Throne, explicitly supported the idea.

Gender wage gap must be addressed
I think the gender wage gap is a real problem for Wyoming because it shows a substantial opportunity gap. If we want to attract families to Wyoming there have to be opportunities for both men and women.
I think [the gap] is a sign that we don't have equal opportunities here.
