Mayor Buddy Dyer: It's Time to Support the Freedom to Marry

Mayor Buddy Dyer,

While we are extremely happy with the recent inclusion of the Domestic Partner Registry in the City of Orlando, we feel that is it time for us to voice our support for complete equality and protection under the law. More than 150 mayors from across the country have joined the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry Coalition. Within our own state of Florida, Mayors: Matti Bower of Miami Beach, Craig Cates of Key West, Joy Cooper of Hallandale Beach, David Levy of Palm Beach Gardens, Craig Lowe of Gainesville, John Marks of Tallahassee, Lori Moseley of Miramar, Jeri Muoio of West Palm Beach, and Frank Ortis of Pembroke Pines have already joined this coalition. Unfortunately, your name does not appear.

The strength and health of our cities are enhanced when all families are protected and supported. Many loving and committed same-sex couples are active participants in improving our communities, and they deserve to know their mayor supports them, too.

Furthermore, the freedom to marry 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.

Please visit http://www.freedomtomarry.org/pages/mayors-for-marriage-statement and sign on to the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry statement. Your city is counting on you to do the right thing.
