Marriage-equality campaign launches; Constantine voices support

A new campaign for marriage equality in our state, Washington United for Marriage, officially kicked off today. And the highest-ranking politician residing in West Seattle, King County Executive Dow Constantine, has just issued a statement supporting it:

“Now is the time to take action, to finally recognize the equality and protect the rights of all the people of Washington.

“I will work in whatever capacity I can to see this legislation passed in Olympia, or if necessary at the ballot box, and look forward to the day I can sign marriage certificates for all adult couples in King County.”

The marriage-equality campaign is on Facebook here, and on the web here. There is not a specific proposal yet, but supporters are lobbying legislators, and saying they’ll go to voters if the Legislature doesn’t step up.

    Thank you for posting this. My Gay friends deserve the same civil rights that I do. I hope our state legislature will pass this. Basic civil rights should not be left to a vote of the people. We need to protect and defend our fellow citizens from those who may not understand them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
