The Gay and Lesbian Activist Alliance does not endorse, but gave Phil a perfect +10 rating.
“Democratic incumbent Phil Mendelson (+10) has been our champion on the council. His record, including shepherding the marriage equality effort through the council over a period of many years, is unchallenged. Most recently, Mr. Mendelson introduced and moved through the Council the Civil Marriage Dissolution Equality Amendment Act of 2011 and the Judicial Declaration of Parentage Amendment Act of 2011. Both are technical and not attention grabbing, but very important for protecting our families. He is one of only two candidates in the April 1 primary to receive the highest possible rating of +10.”
