The general membership of Stonewall Democrats of Dallas unanimously endorsed the slate of candidates recommended by the screening committee at the group’s membership meeting Tuesday night. The screening committee met on March 8 and heard from more than 20 of the 49 candidates who will be on the May 9 Dallas municipal ballot.
No candidates from District 4, currently held by Dwaine Caraway, sought endorsement. That district includes the heavily LGBT Oak Park Estates neighborhood.
Sandy Greyson and Jennifer Gates, who represent Districts 12 and 13, are running unopposed and did not seek endorsement. Gates’ district includes parts of Oak Lawn near Love Field.
