Ann Arbor
The Ann Arbor Democratic Party will vote Sept. 15 on a resolution thanking President Barack Obama for publicly stating his support for marriage equality for same-gender couples.
“Gay and lesbian couples should be able to get state-issued marriage licenses in Michigan and everywhere else in the United States,” AADP Co-Chair Anne Bannister said. “The Ann Arbor Democrats want to show President Obama our appreciation for his leadership on this issue.”
The resolution reads “The Ann Arbor Democratic Party expresses its gratitude to President Barack Obama for supporting marriage equality for same-gender couples.”
“When we first read the proposed resolution at our July meeting everyone there wanted to vote on it immediately because local Democrats care so much about equality,” AADP Co-Chair Mike Henry said. “Our by-laws require at least a month’s notice before a vote, but I’m glad to see so much support already.”
