My proudest day as Governor- WA state has finally said yes to marriage equality!
Today my heart is full. We’ve been on a long journey to marriage equality and the voters have now said that who you are is more important than who you love. Love and fairness have won out, not just here but in Maryland, Maine and Minnesota. This is the start of something big and I’m proud to have Washington leading the way. The journey is still not over for too many of our LGBT friends and families across the country, but I will be there with them every step of the way. Thank you Washington--a very good day!
Thank you to the Washington State House--a civil, respectful debate on marriage equality. And a 55-43 vote! Next stop, my desk!
Thank you Washington state for an incredible eight years. Congratulations Governor Inslee and welcome. I wish you all success in the years to come. It has been my privilege to serve.
Yesterday we welcomed our first granddaughter, Audrey, into the world. Mike and I are over the moon with joy—one of our best days!
