Transcript Inside in Sports: Gay "Olympics" underway; as is Gay World Series; & Galleon wins Houston bowling trophy MONTROSE VOICE The Newspaper of Montrose Issue #97, Published Weekly Friday September 3 1982 Good Evening GPC Decides 'No Endorsement* in Governor's Race By Johannes Stahl Houaton Gay Political Caucus decided not to endorse a candidate for the governor's race after a heated floor debate on the issue. The debate, at the meeting Wednesday, Sept. 1, lasted well over an hour amidst motions, substitute motions, points of privelege and points of information. Many GPC members felt that Mark White, Democratic candidate for governor and current state Attorney General, could not be endorsed because of his reported intention to file an appeal to the recent federal decision declaring Section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code (the "Homosexual Conduct" section) unconstitutional. It was reported that a representative from Mark White's campaign told a Caucus screening committee last weekend that White would initiate an appeal if the ruling was interpreted that only he, and not any local District Attorney in Texas, could initiate an appeal. It was also reported that White was not seeking GPC endorsement and would point that fact out if it became an issue later in the campaign. GPC members who favored White's endorsement, said encouraging no vote in the. governor's race would hamper GPC's in-roads into the Democratic Party because the number of delegates to party state conventions are determined by the number of voteB for governor on the precinct level. One substitute motion called for an alteration in the GPC push card. The motion called for no actual endorsement on the card, but the words, "Increase GPC strength—vote Democratic," instead. The motion was defeated after much debate on the grounds that GPC is a non-partisan body. GPC president Larry Bagneris Jr. stepped down from the chair and spoke on the issue. He said he hoped that party politics would not cause the non-partisan body to endorse White because he felt it inappropiate to endorse someone who would help deny gay rights. In the end, a decision for no endorsement was passed. Debra Danburg, Democratic incumbent for State Representative from the greater Montrose area, called a point of privelege after the motion for no endorsement had passed and the agenda had been moved. When it became apparant that she was going to discuss the governor's endorsement, she was ruled out of order by Bagneris. He pointed out that the only recourse for her was to challenge the chair's ruling, an action which did not carry. During the controversy, a group of Democratic faithfuls gathered in the middle ofthe room and held discussions while the meeting was in session. A total of 44 candidates spoke before the Caucus asking for endorsement. About 80 people attended the meeting. A list of GPC endorsements and party affiliations follows: State Senate District 11—Chet Brooks (D) District 15—John Whitmire (D) State Representative District 131-Ron Wilson <D) District 132—Paul Colbert (D) District 135—No endorsement District 136—No endorsement District 137—Debra Danburg <D) District 146—Al Edwards (D) District 147—Larry Evans (D) State District Courts 113th—Geraldine Tennant (D) I25th—Michael O'Brien (D) 182nd—Richard Trevathan (R) 184th—Carrol Weaver (D) 185th—No endorsement 208th—Thomas Routt (D) 209th-Michael McSpadden (R) 228th—Richard Moore <D) 248th-Woody Denson (D) 257th—Sam Emison (D) 262nd—Doug Shaver (R) 270th Ann Cochran (D) 281st Louis Moore (R) 295th Sharolyn Wood (R) Family District Courts 308th-M.D. Leal (R) GPC president Larry Bagneris Jr. with GPC-endorsed state representativ candidate Debra Danburg at Wednesday's meeting 309th-Brent Burg <R) County Criminal Courts No. 1-Bill Ragan (D) No. 2—Don Hendrix (D) No. 3—Jimmy Duncan (D) No. 6—No endorsement No. 9—Al Leal (D) County Courts at Law No. 1—Ed Landry (D) No. 4—No endorsement Harris County District Clerk — No endorsement U.S. Senate —No endorsement U.S. Congress, Representatives District 7—No endorsement District 8—No endorsement District 18—Micky Leland (D) District 25—No endorsement Governor —No endorsement Lt.
