Papillion mayor David Black recruited antigay Chick-Fil-A; Boston mayor says he'll ban firm from city's Freedom Trail

Papillion, NE Mayor David
Black, a big Chick-Fil-A fan
who lobbied the firm for a store
From the Boston Herald:
     “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” Menino told the Herald yesterday.“
     “If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult — unless they open up their policies,” he warned.
     In February, Northeastern University balked at Chick-fil-A’s plans for an on-campus eatery after students squawked about reports the chain’s charitable arm donated millions of dollars to anti-gay groups.
