first_imgCOUNCILMAN ELPERS RESPONDS TO HIS FACEBOOK POSTS ABOUT DRAG QUEEN READING TO CHILDRENDear Evansville Community,I disagree with the event that the EVPL wants to sponsor.  I believe there are more suitable ways to teach diversity and tolerance that is related to the LGBTQ community.  I voiced my opinion in a non-threatening way without name calling or cursing.However, others were so quick to spew “hate” and “intolerance” of my views.  I wish everyone could voice their beliefs and opinions without fear.  I don’t have evil in my heart.  I care about my community, and I only want what’s best for it.Sincerely,Justin ElpersEvansville City Council 5th WardFOOTNOTE: Yesterday 5th Ward City Councilman Justin Elpers posted a comment on his Facebook concerning Evansville North Park Library allowing Drag Queens to participate in a story hour with children.  We just received an e-mail from Mr. Elpers concerning his response to the people who strongly disagree with his statement on this issue.  We have been told around 1,200 people have responded to Mr. Elpers post so far concerning his opinion about the Evansville North Park Library allowing Drag Queens to participate in a story hour with children.  The City-County Observer post, Mr. Elpers e-mail to us without editing or opinion.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
