Referendum Effort on City of Medina SOGI Ordinance With Attorney Josh Brown

On this program of News in Focus Attorney Josh Brown discusses the proposed SOGI ordinance for the City of Medina. Citizens expressed their concerns to Medina City Council concerning the comprehensive ordinance for LGBTQ special rights that included a public accommodation section which allows for members of the opposite sex to use the bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms of their choice, including in the city schools. Council was tone-deaf to these concerns and went ahead in a 5-2 decision in favor of the ordinance. A referendum petition has been filed with the City Finance Director.  The measure will be placed on the 2020 ballot. According to ORC section 731-29 concerning referendums and petitions, the ordinance cannot go into effect until the referendum is decided by the voters in November of 2020. If the residents vote in favor of the referendum, the ordinance issue is dead.
