Speaker Oliver Applauds Latest Marriage Equality Ruling; Urges Christie to Drop Appeal Effort
(TRENTON) – New Jersey Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) released the following statement Thursday on Assignment Judge Mary C. Jacobson’s order denying a request by Gov. Chris Christie to prevent marriage equality starting Oct. 21:
“I applaud this sound decision that supports equality for all New Jerseyans.
“Gov. Christie needs to finally get the message and stop doing everything he can to stand in the way of civil rights. I sincerely hope he now drops his effort to prevent all loving couples from receiving equal treatment under the law.
“Enough is enough, governor. Do the right thing. Let Oct. 21 be a day of celebration across our state.”
