The Victory Fund toasted its LGBTQ officials, candidates and supporters at its Bubbles & Biscuits fundraiser on Sunday.
Victory Fund CEO & President (and former Houston Mayor) Annise Parker (photo second from left) was on hand to lead the festivities. The group’s current endorsed candidates in attendance included former Doraville City Councilmember Joseph Geierman (for Doraville mayor, photo second from right) and Andy Yeoman (for Doraville City Council, photo right).
The Victory Fund also endorsed state Rep. Matthew Wilson (photo left) during his 2018 election. Former state Sen. Curt Thompson (who’s running for Gwinnett County Chair) was also in attendance.
The event took place at the Wimbish House in Midtown.
Yeoman is an IT professional and the chair of the Doraville Planning & Zoning Commission. He is running to replace Pam Fleming, who was the only councilmember to vote against a sweeping, LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance in November. Yeoman declined Project Q Atlanta’s request for an interview.
