Following in the footsteps of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2004, the Mayor of Santa Fe, David Cross, declared gay marriage legal in the city. SDGLN reports:
At a news conference today, Mayor David Coss and Councilor Patti Bushee were joined by City Attorney Geno Zamora to release a legal memo by Zamora outlining the case that marriage equality is already legal under New Mexico law and announcing a city resolution declaring such and encouraging same-sex couples to apply for licenses from county clerks. ProgressNow New Mexico, a non-profit progressive advocacy group supporting marriage equality, joined to congratulate the city and launched a public campaign to support the city by asking supporters to sign onto the resolution as citizen co-sponsors.
The Mayor is encouraging same sex couples to apply for a marriage license. Love this guy.
