I recently heard a radio ad from Andy Pugno criticizing his opponent Dr. Richard Pan for focusing on social issues while Pugno is trying to focus on important issues related to the economy. I was surprised to hear such an ad from a man who has spent most of his adult life working to deny LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people equality under the law. Not to mention he didn't even reside in the boundaries of the 5th Assembly district until he decided to run for office. Anyone who works to ostracize an entire segment of the population is not worthy of serving an office where he is then supposed to represent ALL citizens of that district. I almost always support the Republican candidate but Pugno has given me plenty of reason to vote for Dr. Richard Pan, someone who actually believes the Declaration of Independence when it says that "all men are created equal."
