Members of the Fairness Campaign and the Shelby County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth listen during a recent Shelbyville City Council meeting. The members were told to get a recommendation from the Shelby County Human Rights Commission, but the commission has now decided to only give its recommendation if requested in writing from the city council.
Fairness group stuck in unfair situation

After being told by the Shelbyville City Council to approach the Shelby County Human Rights Commission for a recommendation on a Fairness Ordinance, members are now perplexed after being told by the commission that they would only give a recommendation at the council’s request.

“I asked them to go to the Human Rights Commission [for a recommendation to the council],” council member Shane Suttor said. “[Council members Mike] Zoeller, [Donna] Eaton…we all asked them to go to the Human Rights.”
