Dear Mrs. McClelland and Col. Hugya,

I understand you wish to be the new representative for the 12th Congressional District. I would like to know if you win the election what you will do to support the gay community. What are your views on gay marriage, hate crimes, EDNA, on such matters as discrimination, and that I want to begin to look forward to a conversation with you at some point so we may more fully understand not only each others viewpoints but, more importantly, where we as individuals of this great community can come together to work for the greater good of all.

Sincerely Yours,

John A. DeBartola

President, Keystone Alliance/Gaylife Newsletter

Response From Erin McClelland


Dear John,

Thank you for your letter regarding my candidacy.  I am an enthusiastic supporter of the LGBTQ community. 

I would be delighted to speak with you about the needs and concerns of the LGBTQ community and how I might be of assistance when elected to the United States Congress.  I have copied my campaign manager, Adam Stokes, on this email and I am sure he will be happy to discuss a meeting soon.

Thanks so much for reaching out.

Best regards and warmest wishes,



Erin McClelland for Congress
