The Lucas County Board of commissioners voted unanimously to support the repeal of Ohio’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Lucas County is home to the city of Toledo.The Blade reports:
Lucas County commissioners have thrown their support behind the campaign for an Ohio constitutional amendment to allow same-sex marriage. The commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday endorsing the Ohio Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom Amendment, a statewide ballot proposal that could go on the November ballot. They are Ohio’s first board of commissioners to officially support the marriage-equality campaign, according to FreedomOhio, which is collecting signatures for a referendum to repeal the 2004 state constitutional amendment recognizing only unions of a man and woman as a marriage in Ohio.
Momentum continues to build in Ohio to bring marriage equality to state – could Ohio be the first state to repeal a constitutional amendment against gay marriage?
