Quezada: ‘Love and equality won the day’
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Martín Quezada, D-Phoenix (District 29), released this statement after Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne announced that he will not appeal the court ruling that struck down Arizona’s ban on same-sex marriage.
“Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne took the ethically correct route today when he decided not to appeal the court ruling lifting the ban on same-sex marriage. His decision is legally appropriate, will save taxpayers money on unnecessary legal fees and is just the right thing to do.
“I would like to express my happiness for the couples who can now proclaim their commitment through marriage in Arizona. Love and equality won the day. This is a historic moment for our state because the work for full, legal equality for all Arizonans must continue and these events add momentum to that effort.”
