Vito Lopez to Stonewall Democrats

Monday, January 24, 2011

Vito Lopez, the Brooklyn Democratic Leader, will be speaking to the Manhattan-based club this Wednesday, at 8 p.m. at the LGBT Community Center (208 West 13th Street).

Lopez has weathered a storm of scrutiny over the lax financial oversight at the non-profit organization he founded. There's also a budding, yet not quite ripe, rebellion to his control of the Democratic organization in Brooklyn, thanks to the Obama-inspired young turks at the New Kings Democrats.

On LGBT issues, Lopez has been ahead of the curve. He announced, via press release, his support of same-sex marraige, way back in 2006 - about two and a half years before Chuck Schumer and other New York officials came around to it.

Other people speaking at Stonewall on Wednesday include Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal and City Councilwoman Rosie Mendez, both of Manhattan.

Lopez chairs the housing committee in the Assembly; Rosenthal chairs the Mitchell-Lama Housing sub-committee, and Mendez chairs the Public Housing Committee in the City Council.
