The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) political action committee (BAYMEC) has endorsed Pam Foley for San Jose City Council, District 9
“I am proud to have BAYMEC honor me with their endorsement. I feel particularly passionate about LGBTQ issues having watched my brother die of AIDS in 1996 and witnessing firsthand the discrimination and rejection he faced growing up.
“In my 14 years on the San Jose School Board, I have helped develop policies protecting LGBTQ youth from harassment and bullying and have encouraged the establishment of a Gay Straight Alliance program at Willow Glen High School. This program promotes inclusion and acceptance and has successfully provided a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for all students.” ~Pam
I’m proud to endorse Pam. She is thoughtful, open-minded and not afraid to make tough decisions. As thoughtfully as she will represent the LGBT community, so too, will she effectively advocate for District 9 residents. ~ Anne Hansen
