Mayor Roswarski Speaks Out on Marriage Amendment

Mayor Tony Roswarski has added his voice to the growing chorus (Republicans and Democrats) of opposition to the passage of HJR-6, the proposed constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in Indiana. The Mayor's entire statement on Freedom Indiana's website reads as follows:
“HJR-6 is unnecessary legislation that hurts Hoosier families, hurts Hoosier businesses, and sends the wrong message to the global economy. We need to ensure that our State and local communities are welcoming, that all people and their contributions are valued, and that we send the message of respect and understanding. In Lafayette we work every day to bring people together to find solutions to difficult problems, to lift people up, move Lafayette forward and to create a quality of life for everyone to enjoy.”
