UPDATE: shareable image + partial text of Rosendahl statement
Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl issued this statement following President Obama’s Inaugural address and his historic remarks on gay rights.
I was ecstatic about the way President Obama presented his remarks on gay rights. His argument was impressive — and I was delighted that he put the Stonewall riots next to the Selma march on his list of key civil-rights turning points. The President has come a long way on his position and I am optimistic that everyone in this country will soon enjoy their basic civil and human rights.BILL ROSENDAHL, 11th District
