TEP PAC endorses Steve Mulroy for Shelby County Commission

TEP PAC is pleased to announce that we endorse Steve Mulroy in the Democratic Primary for the District 5 Shelby County Commission seat and we urge you to support his campaign and vote for him if you live in this district.

Mulroy is a strong LGBT equality advocate with a record of achievement. As sponsor of the Shelby County Non-Discrimination Ordinance in 2009, he opposed discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We need Steve's voice to remain on the Shelby County Board of Commissioners.

Steve’s desire, his passion to make things right for all is powerful. His tenacity in ensuring passage of the LGBT non-discrimination resolution in the County Commission was inspiring, and it is an honor to join the growing list of organizations endorsing Commissioner Mulroy. Tennessee Equality Project knows Steve “gets it” and he gets it done.

Voting Information: Early voting begins on April 14 and ends on April 29. May 4 is election day. For detailed information about early and election day voting locations and times, click here.

How to Help: Attend Mulroy's Campaign Kickoff and Headquarters Grand Opening on Saturday, March 20 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at 4661 Knight Arnold (in shopping plaza at Perkins & Knight Arnold). Burgers, dogs, and karaoke with Myron Lowery and Edmund Ford Jr.

We encourage you to donate to Steve's campaign here and to volunteer for campaign office work, canvassing and phone banking. Call (901-301-3306) or email ( Jonathan Cole for more information.

Let’s keep a strong ally on the Shelby County Commission. Please support Steve Mulroy in the District 5 Democratic Primary election.
