FAIR WISCONSIN PAC ENDORSES MAYOR TOM BARRETT FOR GOVERNOR
Fair Wisconsin Political Action Committee is proud to endorse Mayor Tom Barrett for Governor and Mahlon Mitchell for Lieutenant Governor in the recall elections on June 5.
“Mayor Barrett has been a champion for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Wisconsinites throughout his career in public service,” stated Katie Belanger, Fair Wisconsin Executive Director. “Mayor Barrett has demonstrated his commitment to fairness and equality for the LGBT community.”
His opposition in Congress to the federal ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ policy, his vocal opposition to the 2006 Constitutional marriage amendment, and his participation in the national ‘Mayors for the Freedom to Marry’ campaign highlight Mayor Barrett’s record of supporting the LGBT community.
“In a week when President Obama announced his full support for marriage equality, the importance of having strong allies and vocal advocates for fairness in the Executive Branch is underscored,” Belanger continued. “Wisconsin needs leadership that will stand up for all its residents and we are confident that Mayor Barrett and Mahlon Mitchell will successfully restore Wisconsin to its rightful place as a leader in the equality movement.”
Fair Wisconsin PAC is the only statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) political action committee in Wisconsin. Fair Wisconsin PAC works to elect pro-fairness individuals in Wisconsin through endorsements of specific candidates, financial support and independent expenditure activity. By ensuring pro-fairness individuals occupy seats at both the state and local level we are able to focus our educational and advocacy efforts with elected officials on how, not whether, to continue working towards equality in Wisconsin. With a statewide board of directors and a full-time staff, Fair Wisconsin is the only organization to represent the Badger state in the Equality Federation, the national alliance of state-based LGBT advocacy organizations.
