VOTE NOVEMBER 3rd 2009!!!

It is critical that progressive people get out and vote this year!!!

Statewide Judicial races dominate this year's elections.

We all have seen in California, Massachusetts, & Vermont state courts
play a critical role in upholding the constitutional rights of LGBT to receive
equal treatment under the law.

The candidates who ultimately win on November 3rd 2009 will shape
Pennsylvania for the next decade!

SPECIAL NOTE on the 2009
Pittsburgh Mayoral Race:  Because the Steel-City endorsement process is member
driven and new Independent candidates came forward for the Pittsburgh Mayoral
race after we had completed our member endorsement vote, the board is not
endorsing a specific candidate for the race.  We are, however, endorsing an
informed electorate and encourage all to review the responses to key questions
which the board received from candidates Kevin Acklin, Doc Harris and Luke
Ravenstahl.   The questionnaires are posted on our website and can be easily
located by clicking here: http://stonewalldemocrats.org/steel-city/node/922   We
hope you find the information the responses provide both interesting and helpful
to your decision about the Mayor's race.
