Newsom lauds Proposition 8 ruling 

Mayor Gavin Newsom, who started the battle for gay marriage six years ago when he married gay couples at City Hall, said Wednesday’s ruling was another historic step toward equality.

“If you asked me six years ago if we would be here this soon I, candidly, would not have imagined it,” Newsom said. “We have seen the success of marriage equality being advanced around the world at a degree of pace I don’t think anyone could have imagined.”

“This is a big day for fundamental rights and American values and I’m very proud of it and proud that we played a small role here in 2004,” Newsom added.
