New Yorkers United for Marriage, a coalition of pro same-sex marriage organizations, will be sending out 200,000 copies of this mailer. It features a couple from Nassau County who would like to “invite you to our son’s wedding.”
“Sadly, he’s not allowed to get married,” they say.
The couple personifies a key constituency that marriage advocates need to win over. Nassau County is a Republican strong-hold and home to the Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos, whose conference voted uniformly against the measure in 2009.
The flier ends with a quote from Cuomo, who says, “If we believe in justice for all, then let’s pass marriage equality this year once and for all.”
