David Coss, the mayor of Santa Fe, New Mexico, says there’s nothing in the laws of the state that prohibit marriage equality.
Coss and Councilor Patti Bushee plan to introduce a City Council resolution on March 27 “recognizing” that same-sex marriage is legal in New Mexico. They have a legal memo in which City Attorney Geno Zamara says same-sex marriage is permitted in New Mexico. Zamora says that’s partly so because New Mexico law defining marriage is gender-neutral and lacks any prohibition on same-sex marriage. Zamora also says same-sex marriage is legal because the state already recognizes same-marriages from other states and the New Mexico Constitution requires equal treatment on the basis of sex.
I know a couple of great places in Santa Fe where you can have a reception.
