Council President Clark's statement on Supreme Court ruling to strike down DOMA

SEATTLE - City Council President Sally J. Clark issued the following statement on today's Supreme Court decision:

"I'm elated that the highest court in the land has recognized that the relationships of lesbian and gay people are equal under the law. It's been a long, hard fight, and we've prevailed.

This is a great day and comes just before Seattle's Pride weekend, an opportunity to celebrate and honor the many, many people who have worked decades to see this day."
