FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Las Vegas, NV 04/06/10: Nearly 70 people packed an upstairs gallery of Downtown Las Vegas’ Arts Factory for Stonewall Democratic Club of Southern Nevada’s April membership meeting. Two very special guests, Robin McGehee and Erin Neff inspired the crowd to fight back against bullying, harness the same type of energy the Tea Party and other seditious organizations have and use it for good and continue to call out the bias and lies printed daily in the conservative Las Vegas Review Journal. A new board was elected (results below) and we conducted our 2nd Straw Poll Election for the 2010 midterms
Candidates who do not have a primary opponent were not polled. If a candidate’s name is not listed on the results, it is because they received 0% or no votes.
In no way should these results be interpreted as an endorsement. The state Stonewall board is conducting a candidate interview process which will results in the endorsement of Democratic candidates. Southern Nevada members are free to organize and vote for any candidate of their choosing. These results serve as more of a guide for both candidates and members.

### Stonewall is America's only grassroots Democratic LGBT organization. We focus on creating change in three ways: educating the LGBT community about the differences between the political parties; mobilizing the LGBT community to get out to vote on Election Day for fair-minded Democrats; and standing up when Republicans attack our families and our civil rights while we lead the Democratic party to continue improving its record on issues important to our community.

Politically active LGBT single and looking to mingle! Love to to laugh and think. Big on bios especially Political and trashy Hollywood stuff. Love old movies and classic cocktails. I'm very laid back until I want something,at that point anyone in my way gets mowed down. I will be a city councilman in Las Vegas within the next five years. Very conservative total liberal. Hate idiots on the left and right. PC makes me gag (and not in a fun late 70's way). I laugh all the time! I used to be on American Bandstand and had a spotlight dance to some awful QuarterFlash ditty with my partner Nanette Wallinsky, I believe we were the first interracial dance couple on AB, "we're goin' rockin...."!
