State LGBT Groups Get Behind Philly Lt. Governor Candidate Mike Stack

mike stack lt gov

A host of state LGBT organizations this week have endorsed Philadelphia State Senator Mike Stack‘s run for Lieutenant Governor. Among them is Philly’s Liberty City Democrats (LCDC), Pittsburgh’s Steel City Stonewall Democrats, and the Gertrude Stein Political Club of Greater Philadelphia (GSPC), which released a statement saying Stack, “has a strong organization, strong ties to our community, and has been instrumental to moving bits of progressive legislation through a government largely controlled by people who demonize our community.”




More from Politics PA:

Stack is the co-sponsor of Senate Bill 300, a bill that would make it illegal in Pennsylvania for employers to discriminate against both employees and applicants based on sexual orientation. The bill has been stalled in both houses.

Neither the GSPC and the LCDC chose to endorse a candidate for governor, which means that the support of these organizations is a big and defining win for Stack that affirms his credentials on socially progressive issues.
