Andrew Cuomo reaffirms support for marriage equality

In an apparent response to those who questioned his commitment to marriage equality, Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged New Yorkers to contact their legislators and urge them to support a marriage equality bill in a video he released on Monday, May 23.

"This is a matter of fairness and equality," said Cuomo.

State Sen. Diane Savino [D-Staten Island] confirmed to marriage equality supporters in Manhattan on Thursday, May 19, that there are currently 26 pro-marriage votes in the state Senate. The measure needs 32 votes to pass.

I am one of those people questioning his commitment and all this video proves is that he can make a good video. There has been no indication Cuomo or our leadership is doing their job.
