DE Stonewall PAC, YES image

We are very excited about the election results especially since we went from zero LGBTQ members of the State Legislature to three with the election of Sarah McBride, Marie Pinkney, and Eric Morrison. That with the addition of several other new forward-thinking individuals should help us with our expected legislative agenda for 2021. It turns out that 86% of our endorsed candidates won.

We believe that a lot of our success this past year comes from your work and support, and we certainly want to thank you. Hopefully, our annual meeting will take place around January 30th, but of course with everyone’s safety in mind, this is subject to change. At that meeting, we will be electing officers and recommending our legislative agenda which we will pursue during the next legislative session. You must be a member to vote, so sign up at www.delawarestonewall.org/join-us to contribute.

We are looking for people who are willing to spend a few hours a month of commitment on our Board. The Board should reflect the diversity which exemplifies our State, so if you are interested, please contact Peter Schott, Delaware Stonewall PAC President at dc2de@aol.com, or 302 827-2811.

Delaware Stonewall PAC

We had a great many successes in the election on Tuesday.

Of the 37 candidates we endorsed 31 won. That is a remarkable 83.8%.

We are particularly pleased to have Laura Sturgeon join the Senate after defeating a long time opponent of LGBT legislation.

I also point out that 4 of the 6 candidates who were defeated live in a very red Sussex where not any of the Statewide candidates could garner a majority of votes, even here most of our candidates came close to winning.

Peter Schott,
President
