IT'S OUR TIME, HUDSON! We can do this!!


This is the banner that went up on Fairview Ave in Hudson yesterday....and down the same road a few blocks, next door to Bagel Tyme (where the Hudson Pride Committee buys its bagels every Saturday) is NY State Senator Saland's District Office. Saland says that he is undecided on the marriage equality vote.

Trixie:

As you know, the vote to end marriage discrimination is extremely close and Senator Saland is a key swing vote. Can you post some additional info on you website, such as a model email? Here is the one that I just sent:

Dear Senator Saland:

I am writing to encourage you to vote to support marriage equality in New York State. As you know firsthand, the gay and lesbian community is a driving force behind the economic renaissance in the Hudson Valley. Indeed, it is our diversity that makes the Hudson Valley thrive. Please honor that diversity and vote to end marriage discrimination.

I recognize that you are being bombarded by opponent to marriage equality. But these voices are largely OUTSIDE AGITATORS. Those of us INSIDE Columbia County stand for acceptance, tolerance, and equality. As our longtime Senator, we know you share these values. Please do us proud.
