Statement Regarding Diversity and Inclusivity in the Bexley Community

Understandably, the community is concerned about a recent internet post regarding a query to a Bexley based business, in which the private business in question has reportedly denied a service based on sexual orientation.

The City is concerned as well. We are proud of our community's welcoming environment and encourage mutual respect and inclusivity.

Bexley, Ohio is a community that embraces diversity and welcomes businesses, families and individuals of ALL sexual orientation, race, religion, age, nationality, ethnicity, disabilities, socio-economic levels, etc. As an employer and a provider of services to our residents, we extend that same openness and inclusivity.

It is important to recognize, however, that the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce is a private entity. The City of Bexley has no authority in matters pertaining to the Chamber’s membership or operations. We also know that the Chamber, whose volunteer board members are working on responding to these concerns, has a voice that needs to be heard before any conclusions are made regarding their position on this issue.

We welcome any dialogue and conversation that continues to develop the kind of open community we can all be proud of.
