LGBT community leaders turn out to endorse Malloy

Leaders from the LGBT community gathered today to formally announce their endorsement of Dan Malloy for Governor. In attendance were Anne Stanback, founder and former Executive Director of Love Makes a Family; LGBT and AIDS activist Shawn Lang; State Senator Andrew McDonald; State Representative Mike Lawlor; and others.

"It's not merely Dan's extraordinary commitment to ending discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people that led me to support him for Governor," said Stanback, "From education to health care to job creation, I like the ideas that Dan has put forward. And at a time when our state faces a significant budget crisis, I'm particularly impressed by the the fact that he's led a major Connecticut city, and led it successfully for 14 years."

Lawlor stated that he's known Dan for 8 years and "he is a political leader in the traditional sense: he listens to your concerns, takes up your cause, and gets results."
