Action Alert: VOTE NOW for St. Pete Pride Grand Marshals!
The St. Pete Pride Festival, which is the largest Pride Celebration in Florida, will be held the weekend of June 28-29. We are proud to ask all members of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus to take a moment right now to vote for our Pinellas County Chapter, the Stonewall Democrats for Organizational Marshal AND for St. Petersburg City Council Member Darden Rice for Female Grand Marshal.
The Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County have worked tirelessly to educate the public on LGBT issues, and ensure that equality-based legislation is passed in Pinellas County. With the assistance of the Caucus, the Stonewall Democrats’ PAC was instrumental in the campaigns of many progressive candidates, including the history making wins in the November, 2013 St. Petersburg municipal elections. At that time, St. Petersburg elected a great ally, Mayor Rick Kriseman, and, not one but two openly LGBT Council Members – Darden Rice and Amy Foster. Along with Council Member Steve Kornell, currently 3 out of 8 members of the St. Petersburg City Council are openly LGBT, and a super majority are pro-equality. Being elected Organizational Marshal for St. Pete Pride will spotlight the work this great organization has accomplished.
City Council Member Darden Rice is a great public servant, and a member of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus. We are proud to support her nomination for St. Pete Pride Female Grand Marshal.
The election is close, so vote now for both the Stonewall Democrats and Darden Rice. Together, we can make sure these great activists and public servant get the recognition they deserve.
Remember – when you visit St. Pete Pride on the weekend of June 28-29, please visit the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus booth!
Thanks so much for making a difference!
