Stokes County to weigh in on marriage amendment

(By Meghann Evans, The Stokes News) - The Stokes County Board of Commissioners decided Tuesday that it will consider later this month a resolution in support of the proposed amendment to limit marriage to one man and one woman in the state constitution.

During the public comment session at the start of the board’s April 10 meeting, Walnut Cove resident Ramona Timm suggested the commissioners consider approving a resolution in support of the marriage amendment.

Voters will see the marriage amendment on the May 8 ballot. The amendment will ask people to vote for or against a “Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.”
