Throughout her career in public service, Maria Whyte has delivered nothing but the most stellar services for all peoples in the communities she serves. In 2010, it was Maria Whyte who authored and fought for a LGBTQ-inclusive Equal Opportunity Employment policy, which was unanimously passed by the legislature. County Executive Collins refused to sign the resolution into the policy, failing to protect Erie County residents and taxpayers—failing at that which Maria Whyte has always exceled.
“Maria Whyte has tirelessly fought for the people, for our civil rights and against what is wrong,” said SDWNY President Bryan Ball. “She will be a stellar County Clerk, who will use her skills and expertise to help bring people and their government closer—and more usefully—together. Stonewall is proud to support Maria Whyte. We look forward to the campaign ahead, and working together with Maria to elect one of our best advocates and friends as County Clerk.”
