Waymon Hudson becomes First Lady of Oakland Park, Florida

Just ran out of the victory party to let you all know that Anthony Niedwiecki has become a city commissioner in Oakland Park, Forida, winning his first race for public office. At the time of this report, he is the apparent highest vote getter, making him the Mayor of Oakland Park, a community of 42,000, for the next four years.

It appears that Anthony is the only gay candidate to win in this year’s round of elections in this region.

And, everyone at the party was congratulating Bilerico’s own Waymon Hudson, Anthony’s husband, on becoming First Lady of Oakland Park, Florida.

PS: the victory party is raging at Fort Lauderdale’s most fabulous building.

Thanks for all of your support and well wishes!

I am so proud of Anthony and the campaign we ran. We made our family (our marriage, foster son, and extended family) a strong part of our campaign and challenged people to face their ideas about what family and "family values" really means. I think by the overwhelming vote for Anthony over 65%), we see that many people got the message.

I couldn't be happier for Anthony, my city, and our community.

It was such a pleasure seeing you at the victory party last night, Father Tony! Thanks for everything!

-The New First Lady ;)
