Several more mayors signed on to Mayors for the Freedom to Marry in the past week, bringing the total to 116.
Additions include Stephen Buxbaum of Olympia, Wash.; David Coss of Santa Fe, N.M.; Jim Gray (pictured) of Lexington, Ky.; Gary Norton of East Cleveland, Ohio; Michael Spano of Yonkers, N.Y.; Mike Summers of Lakewood, Ohio; Michael Tautznik of Easthampton, Mass.; and Alex Torpey of South Orange, N.J.
The coalition of mayors advocating for marriage equality is a project of the organization Freedom to Marry. “We stand for the freedom to marry because it enhances the economic competitiveness of our communities, improves the lives of families that call our cities home, and is simply the right thing to do,” reads a statement from the mayors’ group.
