Citing Lack of Funding, NH Gay Marriage Advocate Resigns


Add another resume to the growing list....

The executive director of the driving force behind New Hampshire’s same-sex marriage law announced Wednesday, Nov. 2 she is resigning due to insufficient funding drawn partly through the group’s national organization.

Mo Baxley led New Hampshire Freedom to Marry for nearly six years, including through the state’s adoption in 2007 of a civil unions law recognizing gay and lesbian couples and then its passage two years later of a law legalizing same-sex marriage. She has been the face for the group in its fight to kill an effort next year to repeal the law. -- Associated Press
