Cool Hand Luke

I really love this piece ("The District Score," Mobtown Beat, April 23). However, I am disappointed that state Del. Luke Clippinger (D-46th District) did not receive any credit for being the lead House sponsor for the Fairness for All Marylanders Act ("Trans-Equality Time?," Mobtown Beat, Feb. 12). There is no doubt in my mind that we would not have passed this law in 2014 without him. He secured 61 sponsors for the bill and we passed it with 82 votes! This was an extraordinary feat that we have been trying to accomplish since 2001. He surely deserves some credit for this monumental achievement for transgender equality in Maryland.
