LID of BROOKLYN VOTES TO ENDORSE CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT
On Thursday night, the membership of the Lambda Independent Democrats (LID) voted to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. While the membership appreciates the courageous and historic stances taken by Senator Bernie Sanders and Governor Martin O'Malley, we felt that Hillary was the better choice at this time.
As Brooklyn’s LGBT political club, we support Hillary’s plans for the LGBT community, which aligns with the hard work LID has been doing since 1978. We know that Hillary, as President, will fight to end conversion therapy for minors, protect transgender rights, combat youth homelessness, protect LGBT elders against discrimination, and secure treatment for people living with HIV and AIDS.
Many thanks to the representatives of the campaigns who attended our meeting: Sean Patrick Murphy for Bernie Sanders, Dom Leon-Davis for Martin O'Malley campaign and New York City Councilmember Corey Johnson for Hillary Clinton.
