Local Assembly same-sex marriages votes

NYS Capitol from ESPWe know a bunch of people who read AOA are following the same-sex marriage issue, so we looked up how local Assembly members voted yesterday (the Assembly as a whole passed a bill allowing for same-sex marriage 89-52).

The list -- with a comparison to votes on the 2007 version of the bill -- is after the jump.

* George Amedore replaced Paul Tonko in the 105th District -- Tonko voted YES in 2007
** Tony Jordan replaced Roy McDonald the 112th District -- McDonald voted NO in 2007

2007 votes pulled from a list compiled by Liz Benjamin

I'm glad Reilly came around. He's a good guy, and there's really no good reason he voted the wrong way in 2007.

Notice the lack of comments around this one? Strange, nobody cares about the people who can actually have an effect on this issue, but when a mayoral candidate states that he prefers civil unions we see a thousand posts blasting him, even though he has no control over it.

@herberjo - I think it's more just that everyone already knows where everyone stands at the state level already so there's less of a suprise. It's hard to be all "How dare Tedisco!" when everyone already knew he was a ______ ______ _____.

Although I am surprised this Reily guy switched. You'd think it'd be one of those things that people are convinced about either way and that's that forever.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair. For the longest I had to take trips to NYC to get my hair done until I found Islenia (you can find her as "Hair by Islenia" in Facebook).She has been doing my hair for over 10 ears and she is excellent! ...
