Six months after Salina residents voted to repeal anti-discrimination protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation, the city’s new mayor has joined a national group of mayors who support gay marriage. Mayor Barb Shirley is the first Kansas mayor to join Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, the Salina Journal reported. More than 350 other mayors across the country belong to the group.
