DC Log Cabin Applauds Pro-Equality Candidates for DC Republican Naitonal Committeewoman

WASHINGTON, DC – At its November monthly meeting last Wednesday, the DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans heard presentations from the two candidates for the DC National Committeewoman to be elected during this upcoming April’s Republican Primary.   The two candidates are Teri Galvez, a Ward 2 resident and principal of an event planning firm, and Jill Homan, a Ward 6 resident and principal of a commercial real estate investment firm.

In response to questions, both candidates reaffirmed their support for the District’s sovereign state right to enact legal marriage status to the LGBT community.  Both supported the efforts of Log Cabin to achieve recognition that LGBT citizens, just like all others in this nation, are entitled to full equality of treatment under law, and stated that they each would pursue policies that would help make the national Republican Party inclusive of all segments of the American population.

“It is encouraging that candidates for the RNC would seek the support and guidance from Log Cabin members,” said DC Log Cabin President Robert Turner.  “We are fortunate here in the District to have this caliber of current and future Republican leadership representing us on the national level.  This goes to prove that working within the Republican Party helps to make it a more inclusive Republican Party,” Turner concluded.

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 www.dclogcabin.org.
