MAYOR PAPENFUSE WELCOMES HISTORIC RULING ALLOWING SAME SEX MARRIAGES IN PENNSYLVANIA

May 20, 2014

Harrisburg – Mayor Eric Papenfuse said Tuesday he welcomes the ruling by a federal judge allowing same-sex marriages in Pennsylvania.

“This is an historic ruling and one that I wholeheartedly welcome,” Mayor Papenfuse said. “The doors of City Hall are open to all couples who want to wed.”

Mayor Papenfuse has performed several wedding ceremonies in his first months in office and said he stands ready to wed same-sex couples that request it.

Judge John Jones III on Tuesday declared unconstitutional the commonwealth’s ban on same-sex marriages, the fourth such ruling on a state ban in the last few weeks.
