Commissioner Mulroy receives Movers and Shakers Award from MGLCC

Len Piechowski (right), President of the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center, presented Shelby County Commissioner Steve Mulroy (District 5) with a 2009 Movers & Shakers Award at today's community center board meeting. Mulroy sponsored legislation last spring that established workplace protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of Shelby County government.

Steve's pioneering efforts challenge the Nashville Metro Council and the Memphis City Council to pass similar legislation. TEP expects workplace protections for LGBT employees to grow in all areas of Tennessee.

Steve Mulroy is the only elected official to receive this award after successfully passing legislation designed to protect the rights of LGBT citizens in Shelby County.

Congratulations Steve! You earned it!

Hi ,

Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate, home furnishings and electrical fitment in detail. Over 42 million people move in the U.S. every year. That’s an amazing 1 in 4 adults. Most people will move several times in their lives. Research has shown that relocation ranks third as the most stressful event in a person’s life. Moving can create a lot upheaval. While we might be enthused about the new home, there can also be sadness in leaving behind a familiar home, neighborhood and friends. The last thing we need to worry about is if Oklahoma City movers. company will deliver our belongings safely on the other end.

Thanks,
