We can DO this!
Governor Andrew Cuomo began a campaign this week to legalize gay marriage in New York.
He's planning on using a strategy that will go on a much different path than the similar bill, which failed in the state two years ago.
Attempting to avoid poor legislative and political planning, like the first time around, Cuomo has assembled a group of A-list political strategists and several gay rights groups to back his campaign.
A spokesman for the governor says:
"This is an important issue for the administration, and the governor is committed to working with New Yorkers to get the marriage equality legislation passed."
Cuomo has made this campaign his "mission" and "feels this is part of where New York should be — at the forefront."
Ross Levi of the Empire State Pride Agenda adds:
"We are going to garner all the resources we can. A strong united community working together is going to be a great asset in accomplishing our goal."
We are proud of Andrew Cuomo's efforts to legalize gay marriage in New York. Good luck to you and all your supporters. We're rooting for you.
