Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton on Marriage Equality

I encourage the members of the Maryland House of Delegates to think extensively about supporting the Civil Marriage Protection Act. In my family, my siblings and parents have always made clear to me that there is no way that a union between loving same-sex couples could ever threaten what they have in their own marriages. I urge of you to choose equality and fairness for all Marylanders, and to afford access to the sacred covenant that many of you share with your own spouses. I respectfully ask you to support the bill.
