The Dolphin Democrats, Broward County’s oldest (1982) and largest LGBTA political organization, has endorsed a set of municipal candidates for the March 15 Elections. The endorsements followed a vote of the Dolphins membership at the club’s February 10 meeting and were based on the candidates’ stand on issues of great concern to the LGBTA community. In some elections there is no endorsed candidate since none of the choices fit the Dolphins’ standards.
Dolphin Democrats Endorse
For Davie Town Council District 3 Marlon Luis
For Oakland Park City Commission Scott Herman
For Pembroke Pines City Commission District 2 Jack McCluskey
For Pembroke Pines City Commission District 3 Iris A. Siple
In addition, Dolphin Democrats recommend a vote against Jay Schwartz, who is running for re-election to the Pembroke Pines City Commission in District 2.
“The upcoming elections have special importance to LGBT people and allies, as the backlash to our recently-won rights are under considerable attacks,” says Rabbi Noah Kitty, President of Dolphin Democrats. “Please consider voting for the candidates we have endorsed, as they have all demonstrated an interest in preserving those rights, and will work until all people have achieved full equality under the law.”
