LID's Endorsements

LID is proud to endorse...

David Weprin for U.S. House of Representatives, 9th Congressional District
David Weprin has been an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community for many years, and he has consistently voted to support marriage equality as an Assemblyman.  His opponents are trying to use his marriage votes against him in their campaign to win the seat.  Plus, the national Republican party is pouring large amounts of resources into this race so they can claim to have a mandate from the American people.
Let's make sure David wins.  Please contribute or volunteer here.

Jesus Gonzalez for State Assembly, 54th Assembly District
It is rare that we would support someone who is not running on the Democratic line in a primary.  For this race, however, we could not support the Democrat.  The candidate endorsed by the Democratic County Leader is both anti-choice and anti-marriage equality.  Jesus Gonzalez, on the other hand, is a fresh new voice with a progressive vision for his district.  He is running on the Working Families Party line and has been endorsed by New Kings Democrats, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez and many other progressive leaders and groups.  Please contribute or volunteer here.

Cheryl Gonzales for Countywide Civil Court Judge (Kings County)
Judge Gonzales is currently a Housing Court judge who is widely respected by her peers.  Yesterday, on the first day of marriage equality, she volunteered to preside over the civil weddings of dozens of same-gender couples in Brooklyn.  She has a deep knowledge of the law and brings a human touch to her courtroom.

Mark your calendars!  The primary and special elections will be held on Tuesday, September 13th.
