STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - On Thursday, the Greater Starkville Development Partnership went to Twitter to echo equality after city aldermen denied the permit for a gay pride parade.
On Tuesday, the city's Board of Aldermen voted 4-3 to deny the permit. The decision has caused a divide among the city and its leaders.
GSDP tweeted the following this morning.
As the leader in economic development, tourism, and community development in Starkville, the Partnership echoes the clear message in our mission which states, “We believe in the inclusive treatment of all people. We are our best when everyone is equally engaged and valued.”
