L.I.D. Endorses Judge Margarita Lopez Torres for Brooklyn Surrogate; Deadlocked Again in DA Race Decides to Make No Endorsement

Lambda Independent Democrats (LID), Brooklyn’s lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender political club, was unable to reach an endorsement decision in the hotly contested Brooklyn District Attorney’s race at its endorsement meeting last night. In the race for Surrogate Court the club backed Civil Court Judge Magarita Lopez Torres.

After no District Attorney candidate received a majority of the vote on the first ballot, a motion was made from the floor for the club to not endorse any candidate for DA. By an overwhelming majority club members decided this was the best course of action. At a prior meeting in May after three ballots the club was also unable to come to a decision in the District Attorney's race.

LID president Gary Parker said of Judge Lopez Torres, "LID is proud to endorse her and believe electing Judge López Torres to the Surrogate's Court will restore Brooklyintes public confidence in that institution. She is well known for her consistent and brave stands for judicial independence and reform. LID will work hard to help her win the Democratic primary on September 13th."
