PBCHRC Voters Alliance Endorses Joe Casello

The Palm Beach County Human Rights Council (PBCHRC) Voters Alliance has endorsed Joe Casello for Florida State House District 90.

The Palm Beach County Human Rights Council is a group dedicated to ending discrimination against the LGBT community through education, advocacy, and community outreach.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement and support of the PBCHRC Voters Alliance. I have the utmost respect for Palm Beach County Human Rights Council and everything they accomplish in our community,” said Commissioner Joe Casello.

“In 2014, I took the lead in having the City Boynton Beach update its personnel policies to prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and expression, as well as implement domestic partnerships for city employees.  In 2015, I was the lead person on the City Commission to steer the LGBT-inclusive Civil Rights Ordinance into law. In that same year, I shepherded the conversion therapy ban ordinance through the Commission,” Commissioner Casello stated. “I am proud to know that the Human Rights Council understands my commitment to public service and trusts that I will continue fighting for equality for all.”

Please share this exciting endorsement news with to your friends, family and neighbors.

Sincerely,
