And by support I am referring to Richard’s steadfast commitment to allowing all voices to be heard and to be given consideration – to be made a part of the process. His leadership has allowed us to pursue our mission in the face of many who were not comfortable with the “type” of people we serve. Richard has my steadfast support for all he has done for the gay community and for those living with HIV on the Westside."
