NEW BRUNSWICK – The Democratic gubernatorial candidate applauded today’s Superior Court decision legalizing marriage equality in New Jersey.
“Today's decision reaffirms that all New Jerseyans, no matter who they love, deserve the right to marry. It is a tremendous victory for everyone who believes in equality,” Sen. Barbara Buono said in a statement.
“It is also a stark reminder that Governor Christie stands on the wrong side of history. At every turn, he has prevented our gay brothers and sisters from enjoying the same rights as other New Jerseyans. He must now make a decision whether to continue to be an obstacle or to be part of the solution.
“The courts have spoken and the people have spoken. It is time for Chris Christie to stop blocking equal rights for all New Jerseyans.”
The administration had not publicly commented on the ruling that was issued earlier Friday.
The Star-Ledger will make a "significant announcement" to employees early next month, according to a source.Read More >
