Seattle City Councilmembers applaud
Gov. Gregoire’s support of marriage equality

Seattle City Councilmembers Sally J. Clark and Tom Rasmussen today released the following comments on Gov. Chris Gregoire’s leadership in supporting marriage equality:

“I thank Gov. Gregoire for taking a great step and putting her name behind the drive for marriage equality,” said Councilmember Sally J. Clark. “We have work before us in this legislative session and beyond, but Gov. Gregoire’s is a critical voice in recognizing that all people are created equal and should be treated as such by their government. Gay marriage is legal in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Iowa, and the District of Columbia, and I am proud to be in a state pursuing equality.”

Councilmember Tom Rasmussen stated, “The strong support of Gov. Gregoire is an important boost to marriage equality for all. The City of Seattle is on record supporting marriage for same sex couples and we will work with the Governor for passage this year.”
