“The Empire State Pride Agenda is honored to endorse Noam Bramson for County Executive. As Mayor of New Rochelle, Bramson has been a steadfast supporter of the LGBT community, including marriage equality, and he is a dependable voice for the advancement of civil rights,” said Pride Agenda Executive Director Nathan M. Schaefer. “We’re confident that under his leadership, Westchester will continue to be a safe and enriching environment for LGBT New Yorkers.”

In thanking the Pride Agenda for their support Mayor Bramson said that “Rob Astorino is on the wrong side of history on this issue. He is at odds with the beliefs of most Westchester residents. Even with recent progress across the country, he continues to stand with the most conservative elements of the Republican party in opposing full equality for all citizens before the law.”

Following the enactment of Governor Cuomo’s landmark marriage equality law, Astorino praised New York State Conservative Party Leader for his steadfast opposition to marriage equality, saying it threatened “the taproot of Western civilization.” (Journal News, 1/30/12, LINK)
