Brian Pendleton, a local gay philanthropist who perhaps is best known as the man behind last month’s Resist March, apparently is considering a run for California State Treasurer.

Chad Goldman, Pendleton’s friend and former partner, has reached out to people asking if they would be willing to fund Pendleton’s election campaign. Several of those people have informed WEHOville of Goldman’s request, however, they have asked that they not be identified so as not to offend Goldman. Neither Pendleton nor Goldman has responded to several requests from WEHOville for comment.

The seat Pendleton would be seeking currently is occupied by John Chiang, who has announced he will run for governor. The election is Nov. 6, 2018, and two other candidates already have announced that they are running for the Democratic nomination for the position, which almost certainly means they will win the general election because of the state’s heavily Democratic population. They are Mike Gatto, a state assembly member who represents the 43rd Assembly District and Fiona Ma, chairwoman of the state Board of Equalization. Gatto’s district includes Burbank, Glendale, La Crescenta, La Canada Flintridge, and the Los Angeles communities of Atwater Village, Franklin Hills, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, the Hollywood Hills, and half of Hollywood.

The State of California’s website says the state treasurer “represents all Californians and functions as the state’s lead asset manager, banker, and financier and also serves as chairperson or a member of numerous state authorities, boards, and commissions. The State Treasurer’s Office has broad constitutional and statutory responsibilities and authority in the areas of state government’s investment and finance.”

  1. TAKING AWAY THE PRIDE PARADE FOR THE DAY FOR A RANDOM PROTEST MARCH WAS THE WORST DECISION EVER MADE FOR CONTINUITY OF OUR PUBLIC CELEBRATION FOR LIVING AS WHO WE ARE.

    I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR YOU FOR ANYTHING FOR THE DECISION TO TAKE AWAY OUR PRIDE PARADE … ANY OTHER DAY … FINE … YOU TOOK OUR DAY TO BE US … AND GAVE IT TO THE ALT RIGHT BEFORE THEY TRIED TO TAKE IT FROM US VIA TRUMP.

  2. Resist big government which is hugely corrupt. Wikileaks says it all. Be grateful you have someone in office who at least is bringing attention to the very corrupt mainstream media finance by extremely corrupt Big Pharma, Big Food, etc. Not a Republican. I’m a realist. We don’t need more govt. in our lives. The older/wiser you get, the more you will realize how this reinforces actual freedom. Our govt. is awful no matter what side of the aisle you’re on. I was a brainwashed gay at one time. Not anymore. I don’t want govt. forcing vaccines into my kids, I don’t want govt. telling me how to live my life. Less govt. is the solution for now. The resist march is embarrassing movement.

  3. Regardless of what one thinks of the decision to cacnel the Pride Parade to make way for the Resist March (Pendleton’s idea), doing so caused Pride to lose over a million bucks. But sure, dude, run for TREASURER.
