Updated: The Fairbanks City Council convened the first of three work sessions today to consider revisions to a proposed ordinance that would bar discrimination against the LGBTQ community and other groups. Supporters of the measure told Mayor Jim Matherly and City Council members on Monday that they’re angry the council postponed approving the ordinance. They said they were harassed by opponents of the measure during the Dec. 10 public hearing and subjected to threatening and obscene images transmitted through a cellphone by someone at the meeting.
