A2: Politics

PrideSource.com reports on Sandi Smith’s bid for Ann Arbor City Council representing the First Ward. “I think I have very strong connections to the (gay and lesbian) community. But the coolest thing is that my orientation is not an issue. It’s not like I’m a gay candidate, a lesbian candidate running. I’m a candidate first and I happen to be a lesbian. Nobody mentions it, which is, I think, the coolest part because it doesn’t matter to anybody here.” [Source]
