From the article in the Weekly - "charter organizations sign a contract with the troop to provide a meeting place, sometimes offer financial aid, and train a representative. "
Boy Scout Troop 57 meets at Lucie Stern and has a store there. Does that mean that Palo Alto is their Charter organization? If so, why are we supporting a discriminatory group as a City?
While I understand that there is a potential for the Boy Scouts policies to change in May, if they vote to continue to discriminate against gay people, I don't think the City should provide them facilities. Nor should the Cub Scout troops be allowed to use the school multi-purpose rooms.
