The Equality Florida Action PAC is endorsing City Council candidate Copley Gerdes for District 1, his campaign announced Friday.
The PAC, the political arm of Equality Florida, works to elect pro-LGBTQ candidates throughout the state.
“I’m running a campaign based on inclusion, fairness, and bringing our community together,” Gerdes said. “That’s why I’m so proud to be an ally of our LGBTQ friends and neighbors and to accept the endorsement of Equality Florida Action PAC.”
Two other candidates have filed for the race, a Special Election to be held alongside the city’s regular elections for Mayor and even-numbered council districts.
