Freedom to Mayor-y: 70+ city leaders take principled stand

by Jeremy Hooper

Ay a big press conference scheduled for this Friday, the mayors of over seventy American cities will join up with the Freedom To Marry organization to announce their support for marriage equality. The Wall Street Journal reports:

The mayors of several big cities, including Chicago, New York, Boston and Los Angeles, are joining together to support same-sex marriage rights, a move that could put additional pressure on President Barack Obama to do the same.

Which will be a nice break from all the ribbon-cuttings and key-to-the-city distributions that fill a mayor's public schedule. And unlike those purely ceremonial events, this one has that whole "right side of history" vibe built innately into it. That can't always be said about a new stadium or visiting reality TV star.

Rahm Emanuel (Chicago), Annise Parker (Houston), Jerry Sanders (San Diego, Republican), and Michael Bloomberg (NYC) are just some of the mayoral names you may know. Although this guy…

…has yet to confirm.
