Danielle Skidmore is one of the wave of trans candidates in this 2018 election cycle who are #TransformingPolitics by running for various offices across the country and making history in some cases while doing so..
Skidmore is running for the District 9 seat on the Austin City Council, taking on incumbent Councilmember Kathie Tovo, who has been there since 2011.
Some good news in this ongoing Austin city council race for her.
She has been endorsed by the Texas Equity PAC, the political action committee for Equality Texas. The Texas Equity PAC seeks to elect pro-equality candidates like Danielle in local and state races.
Danielle was obviously thrilled to get the endorsement, and had this to say about it.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of a group that has supported Mary González and so many others who inspire my fight for equality. We have a chance to make history here in Texas, but can’t do it without the support of every day Texans contributing what they can to carry us to victory!”
Danielle is not accepting PAC money for this council race, so if you wish to support her, you can senddonations for her campaign via this link.
Here’s hoping I hear some more good news from the ATX concerning her campaign on November 6.
