Paul's Note - October 12, 2018

Tucson received a perfect 100 score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Metropolitan Equality Index.

The MEI rates cities on issues in five categories: Non-Discrimination Laws, Municipality as Employer, Municipal Services, Law Enforcement, and LBGT Equality.

The survey rated 508 cities and 78 of them received scores of 100. Two other cities in Arizona, Phoenix and Tempe, also received 100 ratings. Gilbert jumped 36 points for enacting a non-discrimination law, but is still far behind Tucson at 55.
