NDP MLA Spencer Herbert to adopt partner’s surname following marriage
Newly married NDP MLA Spencer Herbert plans to take his partner’s surname.
Today (March 30), the B.C. NDP sent out a media advisory announcing the Vancouver-West End MLA is in the process of legally changing his name.
On March 27, Herbert wed LGBT community activist Romi Chandra, his partner of 10 years, in a civil ceremony.
The MLA will now be known as Spencer Chandra Herbert and will use Chandra Herbert as his last name.
“Official Hansard citations may not reflect the change until the name change process is complete,” the advisory said.
