Voting no


I plan on voting no to both constitutional amendments on the ballot in November.

Currently, it is illegal for same sex marriage to occur in Minnesota. It is my hope that someday new legislation will be enacted and it will become legal.

I see no merit for this amendment, except to impede that possibility. Some might offer a civil union as a compromise over marriage, but only marriage offers federal benefits and protections.
