John Taft, CEO, RBC Wealth Management, is not only speaking out against the mean-spirited marriage amendment on ballots this fall, he’s encouraging others to do so as well.
My goal is to have several hundred high-profile business executives declare themselves in opposition to the marriage amendment sometime between now and the election. And I am very confident we are going to be able to do that.
Taft’s message is simple: There is a strong business case to oppose this amendment. Companies need to be able to compete for the best talent, and this amendment would only serve as a detractor to the state of Minnesota.
