Best voice for backward values in Hillsborough: Hillsborough County Commissioner Victor Crist

Best voice for backward values in Hillsborough

Crist vehemently disagreed with the notion of denying Christian conservative activist Terry Kemple a seat on a diversity advisory council, even after the unabashedly anti-gay Kemple trashed the very notion of such a board in an email release. Crist said that it would be discriminatory not to allow someone with Kemple’s “values” onto the board. Initial opposition from Commissioners Beckner and Miller led to the matter being tabled, but it now looks like Kemple will be admitted after all.
