Mayor of New Paltz NY Grants Marriage Rights

"Upon becoming mayor... I took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the State of New York. I take this oath very seriously, particularly as it relates to my duty to conduct marriages. I firmly believe that it would be both unfair and contrary to the New York Constitution to deny the benefits and responsibilities afforded by marriage to same-sex couples. Two adults who decide to make the commitment of marriage should not be denied the protections of marriage." Mayor Jason West, New Paltz, February 28, 2004
