“Evan Low is an exciting candidate — representing a new generation of LGBT leadership. He brings fresh and innovative ideas, a passion for policy, and a high level of energy and dedication to public service,” said California Legislative LGBT Caucus Chair Assemblymember Richard Gordon. “As Mayor of Campbell, Evan stood up against unfair and outdated policies that negatively effect LGBT Californians – work we know that he’ll continue in the Assembly.
