Brunswick, NC Commissioners Vote to Support Marriage Protection Amendment


Local WECT 6 reports:

Brunswick County commissioners officially supported a proposed amendment to the state's constitution that would define marriage as between a man and a woman at their Monday night meeting.

A resolution supporting the Defense of Marriage Act was a part of the board's consent agenda, which the board approved as a whole.

... Jinny Quaglia said she believes in the commissioners approval tonight. She said the elected leaders did their job by voting in favor of the majority's opinion.

"Marriage should be between one man and one woman," said Quaglia, "and I think that most people agree with that."

All of North Carolina will decide if the Defense of Marriage Act and a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage is right for the state on May 8.
