"We're impressed, too, by Kennedy's clarity on issues important to attracting and keeping young people, and welcoming all kinds of talent to Indianapolis... She also would speak loudly against social legislation -- from over-reaching illegal immigration laws to a state constitutional ban on gay marriage -- that portrays the city as a place that doesn't welcome diversity."

-- From an Indianapolis Star editorial endorsing Melina Kennedy for mayor. I was one of the first people Kennedy met with while considering a run for the office; I advised her on how to increase LGBT support for her campaign.
