LGBT Dolphin Democrats members Trantalis, Lonergan elected to city commissions in Broward

Two prominent members of the LGBT Dolphin Democrats club in Broward have been elected to city commissions:

Attorney Dean Trantalis has regained an open seat on the Fort Lauderdale Commission, narrowly defeating (18 votes) former Commissioner Charlotte Rodstrom.

In Oakland Park, Tim Lonergan defeated former Mayor Layne Dallet Walls. He succeeds Commissioner Suzanne Boisvenue, who couldn't run because of term limits.

Posted to Facebook by Tim Ross, president of Dolphin Democrats:

The Dolphin Democrats would like to congratulate all the Democrats who won today, including our own members Dean Trantalis and Tim Lonergan. Dean now represents the LGBT community on the Fort Lauderdale Commission. It is good to have one of our own at the table. Now if we can just get an equal benefits ordinance and LGBT protections in the workplace in Fort Lauderdale. Tim beat a former mayor of Oakland Park.
