Tuesday’s general elections in Charlotte and across several Mecklenburg County towns saw historic wins for LGBTQ and friendly candidates.
MeckPAC, the Mecklenburg LGBTQ Political Action Committee, is pleased by the result of Charlotte’s and other local elections on Nov. 7, 2017. Voters overwhelmingly cast their ballots for LGBTQ-friendly candidates across the city and rejected the hostile attacks and negative fear-mongering by some Charlotte candidates who had been endorsed by the state’s most extreme anti-LGBTQ organization.
MeckPAC, the Mecklenburg LGBTQ Political Action Committee, expressed extreme concern today as a hostile and extremist anti-LGBTQ political group in Raleigh announced their endorsements in local races for Charlotte mayor and Charlotte City Council.
MeckPAC, the Mecklenburg LGBTQ Political Action Committee, congratulates Charlotte City Council candidate Matt Newton for his District 5 primary runoff victory on Oct. 10, 2017.
MeckPAC is pleased that, by an overwhelming majority, voters cast their ballots for LGBTQ-friendly candidates who will provide a more progressive, intersectional and pro-equality leadership for our city.
