JACKSON, Mich. (AP) -- A University of Toledo administrator who was fired in 2008 over her criticism of gay rights has been hired to lead a human resources department in Michigan.
The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that Crystal Dixon, of Maumee, Ohio, is expected to start work next month as director of a joint human resources department for the city of Jackson and surrounding Jackson County. She will be considered a county employee but will work for both departments.
Interim county Administrator Adam Brown says Dixon has experience and professionalism. She has spent the last three years working as a human resources and business consultant.
Dixon lost her University of Toledo job after writing in a newspaper column that gay rights can't be compared to civil rights because homosexuality is a choice.
