Senator Ed Murray Could Run For Mayor Of Seattle

Written by 

 Senator Ed Murray



Perhaps you already heard about Senator Ed Murray on Lezbelib because it is thanks to him that marriage equality was approved in the state of Washington.

Today, he wishes "to put his marker down."

"I’d like to be mayor, I’d like to run for mayor, and so need to leave my options open," he added.

According to SeattlePi, Seantor Murray is a happily partnered gay and a practicing Catholic, he has spent much of a 17-year legislative career wearing down barriers to civil rights legislation for the LGBT community.

That will not be easy for Murray who will face several other candidates and the final list is not known yet. While hoping that the six months he spent to push marriage equality law when the other candidates were starting the race will not do him harm.

Mind you, gay and lesbian couples who would like to marry in Washington will be able to apply for marriage licenses on Thursday while the first ceremonies will start Sunday.


Lezbelib is the online magazine that helps LGBTQ+ women to stay updated with entertaining blogs and breaking news about LGBT rights.
