Capital Region Stonewall Democrats endorse Hoeffel, Sestak

2010 Candidate Questionnaires and CRSD Endorsements
On Wednesday, April 28th, we held our annual Meet the Candidates Night at the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center.   I hope you were able to attend; we had a full house with 23 candidates or their representatives speaking
Following the evening, the full CRSD Board met to discuss the candidates. The board made recommendations based upon the candidates' positions on LGBT issues and their ability to advance those issues.  The full CRSD membership then voted on which candidates to endorse. In order to receive CRSD's endorsement, a majority of members voting need to vote to endorse.
Clicking on a candidate's name will open a .pdf in a new window. (Sue's Note:  pdf links are not working, I will fix later today. Go to their site to view the questionairres).

Endorsed candidates are in bold and marked with an asterisk. 

Pennsylvania Governor
The CRSD Board recommended endorsing Joe Hoeffel, and the CRSD membership endorsed him.
*Joe Hoeffel
Dan Onorato
Anthony Williams
Note: Jack Wagner did not complete the CRSD questionnaire and therefore was not eligible for our endorsement, however he did send us his responses to the Steel City Stonewall Democrats, which you can read here.

Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor
The CRSD Board recommended endorsing Scott Conklin, and the CRSD membership endorsed him.
*Scott Conklin
Doris Smith-Ribner

United States Senate
The CRSD Board found both candidates worthy of our endorsement, and the CRSD membership endorsed Joe Sestak.
*Joe Sestak
Arlen Specter

So all three Stonewall chapters in PA support Hoeffel with Pittsburgh also recommending Onorato. Pittsburgh and Philly endorse Specter and Capitol City endorses Sestak.  Interesting. 

On a related note, I also learned the Central PA has a Chamber of Commerce
