Log Cabin Republicans To Award Keller With Political Hero Award

The Log Cabin Republicans are awarding the 2006 Log Cabin Political Hero Award to Indianapolis City-County Councilor Scott Keller (R) at its national convention in Washington D.C. on April 29, 2006 in recognition of his work in securing passage of Indianapolis' Human Rights Ordinance last year.

In a letter to Keller from Patrick Guerriero, the group's president said the award was to honor Keller "for standing up for basic fairness for gay citizens of Indianapolis, for using facts to combat fear among your Republican colleagues on the City-County Council, and for putting yourself on the line to what is rights." Guerriero added, "Your brave stand represents the inclusive big tent future we are working to build for the GOP."

Keller will be presented the award at the Log Cabin Republicans' national dinner at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington.

Other notables recognized with the award in the past include Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. John Sununu (R-NH) and Rep. John Schwarz (R-MI).

Advance Indiana congratulates Keller on the award, which is well-deserved.
