MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released the following statement today after the United States Supreme Court voted to recognize gay marriage.

“While I believe the Supreme Court should have gone further in their rulings and explicitly upheld marriage equality as a right for all people, the Justices have made it clear that states can decide this issue on their own.

I will continue to fight for marriage equality in Wisconsin and I am confident we will soon see a day where two loving people will be able to choose whom they marry.”

Abele has been a long-time supporter of marriage equality and LGBT rights. Since being elected County Executive in 2011, he’s continued that support by establishing domestic partner benefits for Milwaukee County employees.
