Charles Allen grabs top score on GLAA candidate rating. Record of leadership on LGBT issues cited.
Earlier today, the Gay & Lesbian Activists Alliance (GLAA) released their candidate rankings and awarded Charles Allen a score of 8.5 out of a possible 10 points -- one of the highest scores city-wide.
"I am very proud to have earned the highest rating in Ward 6. I've worked with our LGBT neighbors and families across the District for over a decade -- whether tackling healthcare reforms that serve the LGBT community, standing up in the fight for full marriage equality for all residents, or working with our transgender community to remove barriers and bias. I have been in the fight, I have been a leader, and I know what it means to be an ally."
