This is the first of many upcoming endorsements...
In OH-1 -- true, my voting district, I am endorsing Steve Driehaus over Rep. Chabot. We need more compassionate leadership in Cincinnati, and we need someone who has represented us so well in the statehouse to take that same leadership to DC.
And it's nice that he's ahead in the polls.
Granted, he's not made a lot of statements about gay issues; there aren't many in our area. However, I have been in contact with them, and Steve (via Joe Wessels) was "excited" to not just answer questions from QueerCincinnati.com ... but actually stated they'd rather me sit down with them. IE: he is willing to talk about it, and he's not afraid of what I'm going to ask. The interview is on hold as it was scheduled around the same time as the wind storm and then Steve's father dying. So... yea, more important things came up, but I'm not the only local blogger who was slated to chat that was not able to around the same time.
Besides, Driehaus' camp contacted me; has anyone heard from Chabot???
Kids, October is big month. Aside from the LGBT History, you will be seeing more and more election updates. After all, it is less than a month away. For a look at all the issues that are going on the ballot next month for all of Hamilton County, check this PDF from the BoE.
