HOUSTON: Mayor Annise Parker Makes $50K Matching Donation In Battle To Keep LGBT Rights Ordinance

From Houston Unites:

We have a clear path to winning on Election Day and protecting Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO)—we need to knock on 60,000 doors and keep two TV ads on the air this week. Right now there isn’t enough money in the bank account to cover these expenses. That’s why until Thursday at midnight, Houston’s Mayor Annise Parker is stepping up to match all donations—up to $50,000—to fuel the final push for a Yes win on Proposition 1! This week is our final push to protect our city’s equal rights ordinance. Pitch in right now to ensure HERO wins on Election Day. Mayor Parker will double your donation, dollar-for-dollar!

The referendum is one week from today. Donate here.
