The board of directors of the LGBT charitable group Brother, Help Thyself voted unanimously on March 9 to re-elect longtime gay activist and D.C. mayoral aide Jim Slattery as the group’s president.
In a special meeting, the group’s board also unanimously re-elected Baltimore activist Andrew McCarty as vice president, Beth Brockelmen as secretary, and activist and Dignity Washington official Mark Clark as treasurer.
“It doesn’t seem at all possible that three years have gone by since I was first elected BHT president,” Slattery said in a statement. “The magnitude of the work we do and those we assist with funding helps me always look ahead with optimism and a renewed energy,” he said.
“I remain humbled by, and in awe of, the Board’s confidence and trust in me and look forward to a great year ahead working on behalf of the DC/Baltimore region’s LGBTQ community,” Slattery said.
BHT describes itself as a “501(c) (3) grant making community based organization that provides financial and other support to non-profit organizations serving the GLBTQ and HIV/AIDS communities in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. metro area.”
