Gorham adds up endorsements



Hillsborough School Board candidate Stephen Gorham is picking up endorsement after endorsement.

The latest: the county's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Allied Democratic Caucus. He snagged that endorsement even after incumbent Carol Kurdell showed up at the meeting to make her pitch. Read more at our sister blog, the Bay Buzz.

This is not exactly the first endorsement you'd think of when talking about a non-partisan School Board races. But then again, remember the gay-straight alliance controversy in schools? We bet they do too.

Gorham's high-profile list of supporters includes both major unions in the school district. In case you missed the recent headline, Board member April Griffin has endorsed Gorham too. Even Times columnist Sue Carlton has weighed in on the ruckus this election season.
