Bill Snipes
Oklahoma City, OK

As a business owner in Oklahoma, Bill Snipes takes pride in the work he and his family have done for over half a century, making lives easier and providing safety and security to people from all walks of life. At the center of the business, Loftus & Wetzel Corporation, are the core principles of fairness, equity, and honesty. “My family has been in the insurance business for over 60 years here in Oklahoma City. We sell personal and business insurance, so we get to know the ins and outs of our clients’ lives. It never crossed my mind that an LGBTQ customer could be turned away from a business simply because of who they are. But when my daughter was planning her wedding with her future wife, I realized she could be denied service just because someone objects to marriage between same-sex couples.”

“Owning a business is hard work, but no matter how a person feels about gay or transgender people, it is important that businesses follow the law and treat customers fairly,” he said. “We can’t pick and choose which laws to follow, and no one should be exempt from treating everyone fairly under the law. I’m proud to keep my business open to all.”
