Councilman Tony Brooks comes out publicly as gay man

Tony Brooks "came out" tonight at the Wilkes-Barre Council meeting. He did so heroically and with dignity... the way we know Tony. I have been friends with he and his companion for some time.

See HERE for Times Leader article and the comments that followed. Few times have I honestly been able to call our community the "Valley with a heart." This is one of them. Tears formed in my eyes as I read the supportive comments from friends. Thank you, everyone! You made me proud.
