DOVE GAINS MOMENTUM WITH ENDORSEMENT BY GAY & LESBIAN VICTORY FUND IN HIS CAMPAIGN FOR STATE DELEGATE

 

National Organization Makes First Non-Incumbent State-Level Endorsement in Maryland

 

Severn, MD – Spencer Dove, Democratic Candidate for State Delegate in Legislative District 32, received the endorsement of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, the nation’s largest resource for electing openly LGBT individuals to public office. Dove is the only non-incumbent candidate running for a state-level office in Maryland to receive this endorsement so far in this election cycle.

 

In announcing the endorsement, Mr. Torey Carter, Chief Operating Officer at the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, remarked, “Spencer brings exactly the kind of young, fresh energy that is desperately needed to reinvigorate the state legislature. His presence will help bring transparency and efficacy to a system that truly needs it.”

 

“It is an incredible honor to receive this endorsement,” said Dove. “To have the support of a national organization as distinguished as the Victory Fund demonstrates that my candidacy for State Delegate is for all of the right reasons. I’m running to give a voice to and fight for the good people of District 32. As State Delegate, I will be an independent voice for my constituents, not the political establishment or special interests. If elected, I promise to make both my constituency and Maryland proud.”

 

Dove worked for four and a half years in Annapolis as legislative staff to three Delegates, most recently Chief of Staff to Delegate Joseline A. Peña-Melnyk (District 21 – Prince George’s & Anne Arundel Counties) for two and a half years. His focuses as legislative staff and State Delegate are honor, transparency, and pragmatic leadership to the electorate. He presently works at the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights supporting the enforcement of Maryland’s anti-discrimination laws in employment, housing, public accommodations, and state contracts for legally protected classes. He is also the Treasurer for the Anne Arundel County Young Democrats.

 

Spencer Dove is running for the Democratic nomination to represent in the Maryland House of Delegates the 128,000 citizens that call Legislative District 32 home. A native Marylander, Dove dedicates his professional and personal lives to serving our communities with the vision of making Maryland the best place to live, work, and visit.  For more information, please visit www.dovefordelegate.com.
