UTAH: Same-Sex Marriage Plaintiff Derek Kitchen Elected To Salt Lake City Council

And yet another big win in Salt Lake City. From the campaign’s Facebook page:

Thank you! Thank you to my family for standing next to me through this campaign, for my volunteers for putting in countless hours knocking on doors, making calls, and talking to their friends. Thank you to all my supporters, your enthusiasm, donations, and moral cheers really kept me going. This has been such a positive experience for me as a first time candidate for public office. I’m happy to say that we ran a clean campaign focused on the issues and the residents of this great city. I feel honored that the residents of District 4 have put their faith in me to represent them and make important decisions on their behalf. I’m energized and excited to get to work on the salt lake city council as your next representative!

Kitchen and his now-husband Moudi Sbeity were one of three couples that won their case in December 2013. In June 2014 the Tenth Circuit Court upheld that decision, but stayed their ruling pending the appeal to the Supreme Court, which was denied in October 2014.

    SLC has gone gay! OMG! The Elders must speak!

    Congrats!

    I live in his district…this is actually a disappointment as he’s a pretty-boy with no substance who happened to win a federal case. It’s too bad really. His opponent has more social justice credibility.

      Aren’t we being the wet blanket this morning?

    • Circ09

      Well, got to give the pretty boy a chance now. Maybe you can put some constructive bugs in his ear. It might all turn out better than you think.

    • djlee

      I am in his district as well. Obviously the majority feels differently than you.

      • ColdDesert

        So I’m not allowed to criticize since he won an election?

  • William

    Is there some alternate dimension Salt Lake City that I don’t know about?

    • Judas Peckerwood

      SLC is to Utah as Austin is to Texas — an oasis of sanity in desert of lunacy.

    Utah is going pink ??

  • Queequeg

    Wow, Salt Lake City now a welcoming place for LGBT people? Seemed so unlikely a few years ago.

  • Nic Peterson

    Hubby and I like to refer to SLC as Utah’s blue stain. Make no mistake, though. Wander too far out of the CITY limits and you will find yourself surrounded by the cray cray.
