After three years of debating the issue, the Berea City Council has voted down a proposed fairness ordinance.   The measure failed Tuesday night by a vote of 3 to 5.

The measure sought to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, housing, and public accommodations. 

The results of Kentucky’s May 17th primary election have been officially certified.  It took the State Board of Elections less than an hour to go over the numbers and certify the primary vote tallies.  Secretary of State Elaine Walker says the only exception to the election night vote count was addressed in a recanvass conducted two weeks ago.
