Whatever his sexual orientation might be, Randall is clear on one thing. He opposes amending the city's civil rights ordinance to protect persons from discrimination based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. Randall said he believed gays are adequately protected under the current law and an amendment to the local law is unnecessary. He told the local newspaper his position remains unchanged following the revelation he sometimes hooks up with gay men for sex.
"I don’t know if I thought this wouldn’t come up or would (when running for office),” Randall said. “But I still believe in my heart of hearts that our gay and lesbian communities are protected currently under the law. If there are cases that need to be brought, let’s bring them. I don’t know why they feel they need special protections when there are other categories that might need protections. My little experimentation over the last six years hasn’t changed my view on that.”Randall, who says he still dates women, is a prominent figure in the Goshen community where he is the voice of the local football and basketball teams during games on a local radio station. He also is the coach of the high school golf team and works as a relationship development manager for the local Ford dealership. “In the back of my mind I knew that profile was out there,” Randall said. “I really didn’t think it would come out. … It’s a bridge I really didn’t want to cross. The other side of that is I’ve been dating women too. It’s just something I’ve opened myself up for.”
Our municipal election in Indianapolis is just too boring this year. East Chicago has an accused murderer and drug dealer running for its city council. Evansville has an accused child molester on the ballot for city council. Rising Sun's municipal election is marred by allegations of vote fraud by a local police officer. And conservative Goshen has a confused 53-year old who likes experimenting in casual sex with gay men and doesn't mind advertising that fact on the worldwide web.
