Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: Marriage Equality in New York State

"Now that the debate on marriage equality has been resolved, it is time for us to come together and move forward in a positive manner with respect for our fellow Bronxites and all New Yorkers, irrespective of our differences, backgrounds and religious beliefs. We must both celebrate and build upon our diversity for a better and brighter future for all of our hard working families. I also wish to compliment Governor Andrew Cuomo for working sincerely and diligently to ensure that the appropriate balance of protections are ensured within the bill.

“With that said, I now have two marriages to look forward to—those of my niece Erica Diaz and my chief-of-staff Paul Del Duca," said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
