I get MassEquality’s emails, having worked with and donated to them in the past. They were an instrumental group in retaining gay marriage in Massachusetts, and are an excellent activist group. MassEquality PAC has come out with their endorsement for the primary in our state Senate race, and they chose Eileen Donoghue (bold theirs):
I am pleased to inform you that the MassEquality PAC has endorsed Eileen Donoghue to be your next state senator.
This race offers an opportunity to fill a seat that’s been held by an anti-equality lawmaker (who is not running for re-election) with a pro-equality candidate. There are more contested seats in the state legislature this year than any in Massachusetts in the last 50 years. It is critical that we re-elect pro-equality candidates and fill open seats with candidates who support our rights in order to preserve our 151-vote super-majority in the state legislature to defend against anti-marriage initiatives.
Eileen is the former mayor of Lowell. She is a strong supporter of marriage equality and has pledged to sponsor the Transgender Civil Rights Bill.
Today we urge you to spread the word about Eileen and to get involved in her campaign. Please vote for Eileen Donoghue on Tuesday, September 14 in the Democratic Primary.
‘Nuff said! One of the biggest issues I have fought outgoing Senator Pangiotakos on, is on gay rights and gay marriage. He was on the wrong side of history then, and continues to be. Changing this seat to a pro-GLBT-rights seat will help ensure continuing progress on equality for all the Commonwealth’s citizens.
