Alderman Q.A. Shakoor II apppears to be trying to shore up support for his mayoral run.
Shakoor met with Rev. Tony Larsen and the Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church tonight to discuss his vote against the gay community center in Uptown.
Shakoor was one of three City Council members to vote against granting a conditional-use permit for the LGBT Center. He said at the meeting more discussion was needed on the issue.
The LGBT Community Center appears to be doing well. It recently received a $10,000 grant from the Cream City Foundation to help with the start-up.
We weren't at the meeting. If anyone can report what happened, please post in the comments.
