Now He Needs Your Help in the General Election!

kornell221.jpgTuesday, Steve Kornell took a huge step toward making history in Florida as St. Pete's first openly-LGBT city council member by overwhelmingly winning a three-way Primary Election with 49% of the vote among District 5 voters.

Now Steve moves to the city-wide general election - a huge hurdle - but winnable with your support. The next ten days are crucial to Steve winning the General Election and that's where you come in.

Steve needs to raise enough money to mail every likely voter before absentee voting begins.
