NEW: Treasurer Raimondo Voices Support for Gay Marriage

Thursday, January 10, 2013

 

General Treasurer Gina M. Raimondo today expressed her strong support for marriage equality in letters to House Speaker Gordon Fox and Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed.

The letters, urging swift passage of the pending legislation in both chambers, reads, in part:

"Marrying my husband Andy 11 years ago was the best decision of my life, and we have two beautiful children together. Every Rhode Islander who wants to be in a loving and committed marriage should have the same rights as we do.

"Rhode Island's history is a story of tolerance. We now have the opportunity to make our state a truly inclusive place. By respecting the rights of all our citizens, Rhode Island becomes stronger."
