Maryland: Mayor Bloomberg Joins Governor O’Malley to Show Bipartisan Support for Marriage

Post submitted by Susan Shakir, former HRC Director, Youth and Campus Engagement Program

Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined Governor Martin O'Malley and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake this evening to demonstrate the strong bipartisan support for marriage equality. As a Mayor in a state where marriage equality has been passed by the legislature, Mayor Bloomberg has seen the benefits of treating gay and lesbian couples fairly and equally and stands here today to ask voters to vote for Question 6. 

In Maryland, early voting starts on Saturday, Oct 17th at 10 am. For a list of early voting locations, visit
