Zach Adamson is a newcomer to being a candidate for office, but he's no newcomer to organizing and politics. Adamson has a long history working in his local community as well as with local and statewide advocacy groups, including Indiana Stonewall Democrats, to create change and make progress. Whether it's economic development in his blighted Indianapolis neighborhood or standing up for the rights of LGBT people, Zach has dedicated many years to public service.
Today, the Indianapolis Star, which is the paper of record for most of Indiana, came out with a strong endorsement of Zach's campaign for Indianapolis City-County Council. The paper cites his leadership in community issues, his experience working with local government as a business owner and activist and his positions on public safety, city finances and mass transit and that, "Adamson has done his homework on the major issues facing Indianapolis. He should be given the opportunity to apply it."
Earlier this week, Adamson and two other openly gay candidates - Jackie Butler and Todd Woodmansee - got a very complimentary article in Indianapolis Monthly, a very respected general interest magazine focused on life in the city. And because all three of the out gay candidates in Indianapolis are Stonewall Democrats, the article talks extenstively about Stonewall's influence in the election this year as well. (The article is not yet online, but we have included an image taken of the layout in the magazine.)
Congratulations to Zach on his endorsement and good luck to all three of the Stonewall Democrats running for office in Indianapolis. It should be a great year for pro-equality Democrats in Indiana!
