From the petition:
Largo City Commissioner Mary Gray Black is up for re-election, and her opponent, 30-year old Michael Smith just so happens to be gay. In recent town hall meetings, Mary Gray Black has compared the gay lifestyle as being similar to a “drunkard lifestyle”.
Mary’s comments against her opponents sexuality was both innapropriate and completely unnecessary. Call on Mary Gray Black to apoligize for her comments and to denounce homophobia!
