FitzGerald Would Be First Ohio Governor in Favor of Full LGBT Equality
In a May interview with Outlook Magazine, gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald discussed his support for full equality, including marriage and ending housing and employment discrimination. If elected, Ed FitzGerald would be the first governor in the history of the state to support full equality for all Ohioans.
“My support for full equality, including marriage, is as simple as supporting basic civil rights for all Ohioans, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
“Part of being a Democrat is fighting for equality for all people. We should not have a law that discriminates against gay and lesbian couples in Ohio. The fabric of our state is diverse, and we all deserve to stand on equal ground.
“Marriage provides the greatest security for loving, committed couples and their families, especially in times of crisis. If elected governor, I will do everything I can to help in the fight for marriage equality and work to end housing and employment discrimination for all Ohioans.”
