Catawba County commissioners adopted a resolution this week to support the state's proposed constitutional marriage amendment.
The amendment â€” which states that the only legally recognized union in North Carolina is marriage between one man and one woman â€”is on the state's primary election ballot this spring.
Commissioners voted 3-2 to approve the resolution in support of the amendment.
A group of 32 citizens spoke during a public forum before the vote. Some urged county leaders to vote down the amendment. Some told commissioners the board should not involve itself in such a matter. Others supported the move.
What do you think?
Did county leaders react appropriately? If yes, did they make the right move by adopting the resolution?
