Lake Como on Tuesday joined a host of communities throughout New Jersey passing resolutions in favor of marriage equality, an advocacy group said.
The borough at its Tuesday meeting passed a resolution calling on the state legislature to adopt S-1, legislation that would establish marriage equality in New Jersey, according to a release from New Jersey United for Marriage.
“Lake Como is proud to stand with those in New Jersey who believe that all loving, committed couples deserve the freedom to marry,” Council President Brian Wilton said in a release. “We hope that our action, along with other communities, will show the Legislature that the people of New Jersey want marriage equality to happen, and happen now."
Lake Como, in the 30th Legislative district, joins North Brunswick, Rahway, Red Bank, Asbury Park, Princeton and the Essex and Union County Boards of Freeholders in having passed resolutions calling on the legislature to take action.
“Each day brings more and more momentum in the ongoing effort to establish marriage equality in New Jersey. We are proud to welcome Lake Como to the ever growing list of towns and counties that are showing that they believe, like over 60 percent of New Jerseyans, in the freedom to marry,” said New Jersey United For Marriage campaign manager Michael Premo.
