WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans congratulates Patrick Mara for running a great campaign.  With just over twelve percent voting, it turned out to be a near historic low-voter turn out election.  Log Cabin is pleased that a majority of the precincts with a large concentration of LGBT voters were won by Mara.
“Of course we’re not pleased with the outcome, but we live in a democracy.  And barring anything major resulting from the provisional and special ballots casts, we congratulate Vincent Orange and wish him well,” said President Robert Turner II.  “But we are here to put the returning councilmember and the rest of the City Council on notice that we will be watching!  We don’t expect our elected officials to be perfect, just honest.  And there is a major shortage of that currently on the Council,” he continued.
“It really is surprising that the people chose the status quo when all they’ve been talking about for the last three months are the problems with the status quo.  They are not voting for anyone or anything new,” Turner concluded.
In spite of the narrow loss, Mara will continue to serve on the DC State Board of Education, representing Ward 1.
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.
