Mayor David Coss and City Councilor Patti J. Bushee Issue Statements

 on today’s New Mexico Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage

Statement from Mayor David Coss:

“I can’t get past happy, happy, happy at the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision that rules in favor of freedom and equality for everyone to marry the person they love. I would like to thank former City Attorney, Geno Zamora for his written opinion, Progress Now, Santa Fe Human Rights Alliance, Equality New Mexico and the American Civil Liberties Union for their support.”

Statement from Councilor Patti J. Bushee:

”As Dr. Martin Luther King once said, ‘The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.’ Today’s decision of the New Mexico Supreme Court reinforces my faith in the New Mexico judicial system and in my City of Holy Faith. Personally, the most rewarding aspect of today’s decision is the pride I share with hundreds of LGBT New Mexicans that I have worked with for over 25 years. We have shared our stories, made friends and allies, and now today we realized our dream of living in a New Mexico where everybody is equal under the law.”
