Log Cabin Announces Departure of Political Director
Barron to Lead Republican Outreach Efforts for Planned Parenthood
(Washington, DC) – “Log Cabin Republicans thank Chris Barron for his loyal and professional service to this organization. He has been a huge asset to Log Cabin and we wish him the best in his new position. Chris has helped us achieve important progress in making the conservative case for gay and lesbian equality,” said Log Cabin President Patrick Guerriero.
Chris Barron joined Log Cabin as Political Director in February of 2004. He coordinated Log Cabin’s lobbying efforts to defeat the anti-family Federal Marriage Amendment. Barron also implemented a GOP lobby strategy for HIV/AIDS funding, hate crimes legislation, federal employment non-discrimination legislation, and legislation repealing the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Early next month, Barron will join the Planned Parenthood Federation of America as the head of Republican outreach efforts.
“Over the past 2 years, Chris Barron was on the front lines fighting for an inclusive GOP, fueling Log Cabin’s unprecedented growth across America, and fighting to defend our families from attacks by the voices of intolerance,” said Guerriero.
“It has been an honor to serve as Log Cabin’s Political Director during one of the most important moments for our organization and for our community. I thank Patrick and the Board for their leadership during my time at Log Cabin,” said Chris Barron. “I look forward to continuing being a part of the Log Cabin family, and continuing to support this organization in its fight for basic fairness for our families.”
