He is our kind of candidate. Please join me in supporting Alfonso Lopez on August 23rd.”
The Virginia Partisans join leaders in the LGBT community in supporting Lopez, including: Charley Conrad and Arlington County Board Member Jay Fisette (who in 1997 became Virginia’s first openly-gay elected official).
“I have been a consistent supporter of LGBT rights in the past and, if elected, I will be a reliable progressive voice leading the fight for equality in Virginia,” said Lopez. “I am honored to be endorsed by the Virginia Partisans. I will never stop working towards complete equality for our LGBT brothers and sisters.”
