151 Good Ones for Marriage Equality

Mass Equality tabulated the votes today defeating the initiative to stop same-sex marriage here. The votes by house and member are here.

Just in case they get clogged, I'll duplicate it here. Credit goes entirely to MassEquality.

My version has just the legislators with their votes. See the link above for phones and emails for thanks...and other messages.

FINAL TALLY: 151 to 45

Heroic Nonet


A Boston Globe staff short not long after the vote identified nine -- 7 in the house and 2 in the senate -- who changed their votes to ensure the victory. Whether it was for enlightened self-interest (or fear of voters) or love of equality, we should each and all thank:
  • Rep. Christine Canavan, D-Brockton
  • Rep. Paul Kujawski, D-Webster
  • Rep. Paul Loscocco, R-Holliston
  • Rep. Robert Nyman, D-Hanover
  • Rep. Richard Ross, R-Wrentham
  • Rep. James Valee, D-Franklin
  • Rep. Brian Wallace, D-South Boston
  • Sen. Gale Candaras, D-Wilbraham
  • Sen. Michael Morrissey, D-Quincy
I'll ink up a fountain pen for my version. They deserve more than an email each.

Anyone know where Marie St Fleur was today? She is such a stalwart ally.
