Rep. Kerttula Commends Sen. Murkowski for Support of Same-Sex Marriage
JUNEAU – Today, Representative Beth Kerttula (D-Juneau) released the following statement commending U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) for her statement in support of same-sex marriage.
“Alaskans have always respected the independence and privacy of our fellow residents, and we hold dear our right to lead our lives free of any unnecessary government intrusion. The government has no business telling Alaskans or any Americans who they can and cannot marry. I am proud of Senator Murkowski for being a leader in her caucus in defending the rights of Americans to build their families and formalize lasting commitments based on love without the government getting in the way.”
