Everett rightly minds own issues

Thank you, Mayor Stephanson. Thank you for not wasting taxpayer money misappropriating your time researching a law in another state just because you may or may not question it. Thank you for not spending your time and energy introducing legislation to boycott a state because of a law you perhaps have not even read. Thank you for not mistrusting the citizens of another state to handle their own response to their laws. And thank you for not discriminating against one state by over-reacting to its personal issue when 19 other states have similar laws.

So thank you, Mayor Stephanson, for tending to the business for which you were elected, and not allowing yourself to be distracted by opportunities to further your own personal political agenda. Good job!
