Fight for Marriage Equality in Wisconsin Will Go On
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released the following statement today after the United States Supreme Court voted to recognize gay marriage.
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.
