The political action committee of the Fairness Campaign, C-FAIR, has endorsed Metro Councilman David Tandy, D-4, for mayor of Louisville, along with several other candidates seeking public office in the upcoming May primary. The gay rights group’s endorsement process engaged the mayoral candidates in wide-ranging discussions of issues important to both the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, according to its press release.
In the Democratic Primary for Mayor, CFAIR endorses Councilman David Tandy, a longtime friend of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community…In his interview, Councilman Tandy set out a broad, vigorous, and enthusiastic vision for Louisville that included a strong focus on education and a balanced growth of local, independent small businesses alongside larger corporations.
