"The proudest vote I ever took as a state legislator was the vote I cast for marriage equality. Ten years ago today, the first same-sex couples walked into City Hall to receive their marriage licenses, and I remain honored to have played a part in helping make that a reality.

"Today, I'm proud to lead a city that is a beacon of justice and respect. On this day of joy, I hope we can reflect, celebrate, and recommit to ensuring equality for all.”
