Maryland Democrat City Council Member Supports New Chick-fil-A Store

 

The Washington Times:

The decision whether to eat at Chick-fil-A has become a hot-button issue since the fast food company’s president opened up about his support for traditional marriage, but one local politician says she’s not making a political statement by welcoming the company with open arms.

Prince George's County Council member Karen R. Toles, a Democrat, said she’s attending the opening of a Chick-fil-A in District Heights on Thursday to celebrate the economic development in her community.

“When you have someone who hires over 100 people from your county alone, that is something to celebrate,” Ms. Toles said.
