Ron Galperin has become the first openly gay candidate to win a citywide election in Los Angeles, the second-largest city in America. Galperin won his race for city controller. Another gay candidate, Mitch O'Farrell, was elected to the L.A. City Council. "They are committed public servants with deep experience in municipal issues, and they will both be strong voices for LGBT Angelenos," said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Victory Fund.
