Anti-discrimination laws passed in Bowling Green – By Jennifer Feehan – Blade Staff Writer

Bowling Green – Cheers rang out from all but a handful of people crowding the Wood County Board of Elections office yesterday when it was learned that two city ordinances that protect gay and transgender persons from discrimination had passed.

The laws, which were adopted by Bowling Green City Council in August, 2009, were put before voters as referendums Nov. 2. On election night, one passed, the other failed – both by slim margins.
