LT. GOV. POLITO ATTENDS LGBT EVENT DESPITE REFUSAL TO SUPPORT TRANSGENDER RIGHTS BILL
In light of Lt. Gov Polito's speech at an LGBT business builder event – even as the status quo Baker administration refuses to support ending discrimination against transgender individuals – MassDems spokesman Pat Beaudry issued the following statement:
"It's disingenuous for Lt. Gov Polito to speak at an LGBT business event if she still refuses to support legislation that would end discrimination against our transgender citizens. Today we call on her to change her position and endorse the public accommodations bill."
