The LGBTQ Victory Fund, the only national organization dedicated to electing LGBTQ people to public office, today endorsed Kristin Graziano for Charleston County sheriff. Graziano would be the first openly LGBTQ sheriff ever elected in South Carolina.
The endorsement comes one day after the political action committee of SC Equality, the statewide organization dedicated to LGBTQ equality in South Carolina, also endorsed Graziano.
“LGBTQ Victory Fund is pleased to endorse Kristin Graziano for Charleston County sheriff,” said Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund. “Kristin’s commitment to community inclusion, administrative transparency, and fairness in law enforcement makes her the best candidate for sheriff. When she wins in November, Kristin will become a vital LGBTQ voice.”
The Victory Fund added, “LGBTQ people remain severely underrepresented in government nationwide – holding just 0.15 percent of elected positions despite representing at least 4.5 percent of the U.S. population, according to Gallup. As an openly LGBTQ leader, Graziano will be an unwavering voice for equality in Charleston County. Her priorities in office will include implementing independent audits of the department’s policing practices and finances, creating a community task force to provide oversight, and reforming the juvenile justice system.”
