In a first, transgender CA man wins elected post


“Spickler… in a Facebook message to the Bay Area Reporter shortly after the filing deadline had closed at 5 p.m., he confirmed that no one filed to run against him. Since he was the only person to seek the seat by the deadline to do so, Spickler will now be appointed to the college board in lieu of an election. He will become the first transgender man to hold public office in California.” Bay Area Reporter, August 15, 2018
