Written by 

gay-vote

Tuesday was an election day in the US cities with a lot of LGBT candidates wishing to obtain a seat in a City Council, in a senate or to become mayor. I've got the results and that was a great victory!

 

They did not all win but most of them were elected. Here the winners:

 

Daniel Hernandez

 

Daniel Hernandez was elected at the Sunnyside Unified School District Board in Arizona obtaining more than 60% of the votes.

 

 

 


 

Annise Parker

 

 

In Houston, Annise Parker was re-elected as mayor with 51% of the votes and in spite of many criticisms and homophobe remarks that these opponents told her.

 

 

 

 


 

Alex Morse

 

Alex Morse did it! He was elected mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts at only 22 years old.

 

 

 

 


 

Zach Adamson

LaWana Mayfield

 

LaWana Mayfield was elected in the City Council of Charlotte, NC where some people try to ban gay marriage in the constitution of the state.

"Honestly I believe the community recognizes that my five year committed relationship is the least of their worries," Mayfield told WBTVWBTV. "We still need to look at stabilizing our property values, look at strong community safety, and smart economic growth."
