WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans unanimously endorsed Ward 1 School Board Member Patrick Mara for the At-Large City Council seat in the April 26th special election, in a membership vote at Wednesday’s chapter meeting.  In their endorsement, DC Log Cabin Republicans indicated their intentions to assist the Mara campaign with volunteers and financial support, including a fundraiser set for April 5th. 

“Patrick is an amazing candidate and a great friend not only to Log Cabin, but also to the entire LGBT community,” said President Robert Turner II.  “He is the only candidate who actually testified in support of bringing marriage equality to the District,” he continued.  “Recent events have shown that the Council needs a watchdog looking out for taxpayers, and we believe Patrick Mara will provide that oversight.  Let’s bring common sense back to the Council,” Turner concluded.

Bob Kabel, Chairman of the District of Columbia Republican Committee said in a statement, “Patrick is the only candidate for the April 26th special election who has a proven record on gay and lesbian issues.  He vigorously lobbied Republican Members of Congress with me to protect DC’s marriage equality laws.”

Log Cabin Republicans is a national organization started in 1977 that believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. The DC Chapter holds monthly meetings, supports local Republican candidates and sponsors monthly social gatherings. For more information, please visit http://www.dclogcabin.org.
