SEAMEC announces endorsements for 2009 primary

SEAMEC announced its endorsements this week for the 2009 primary election.

SEAMEC has endorsed Dow Constantine and Larry Phillips for King County Executive, David Bloom for Seattle City Council Position 4, Nick Licata for Seattle City Council Position 6, and Dave Kaplan for Des Moines City Council Position 7.

SEAMEC previously announced its endorsement of Rob Holland for Port Commission Position 3. No other candidates were endorsed.

SEAMEC endorses candidates only "in recognition of a clear choice of importance to the LGBT community, or in recognition of a distinguished history of activism on behalf of the LGBT community."

In a rare dual endorsement, SEAMEC recognized the contributions of County Council members Dow Constantine and Larry Phillips to the LGBT community. Constantine and Phillips are two out of a field of eight candidates running for County Executive.

Constantine has previously won SEAMEC endorsement four times in a political career that includes service in the state legislature and the County Council. He has long been considered one of the LGBT community's most outspoken allies.

Larry Phillips has been endorsed by SEAMEC only once before, but in several County Council races he has run unopposed. As County Council budget chair on several occasions he has been instrumental in saving LGBT services and projects threatened by budget cuts.

David Bloom is running against four other candidates for the City Council seat being vacated by Jan Drago. Bloom has a history of activism going back more than 30 years, focusing particularly on LGBT homeless populations and the working poor.

Nick Licata is running for his fourth term on the City Council. Considered one of the City Council's leading progressives, Licata has a reputation for being unafraid of dissenting from the majority on the Council.

Dave Kaplan is an openly Gay candidate for Des Moines City Council. He was active for many years in Log Cabin Republicans, but now no longer identifies as a Republican.

Holland is an openly Gay African American man running for office for the first time. SEAMEC announced its endorsement of him last week.
