Marital discrimination

I am interested in expressing my dissatisfaction with Provo's current attempts to organize the city based on marital status. The idea that citizens can be categorized and relocated based on any qualification is exactly what decades of equal rights activists have been fighting against. We can't pretend that simply limiting how many singles can live where is not an extreme move, that such an ordinance is only helpful with distribution and not full out segregation.

This ordinance will be difficult and costly to enforce. It is discriminatory and should be seen as an embarrassment to Provo.
