State Senator Donald McEachin releases statement on Supreme Court's Bostic Decision

Via the office of Senator A. Donald McEachin:
HENRICO – Senator A. Donald McEachin (D – Henrico) today released this statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision today to decline review of Bostic, fully opening the door to marriage equality in Virginia:

"I am very pleased and excited that gay Virginians will now be able to marry. This is a significant step forward in achieving justice and fairness for all. I eagerly await the day when it won’t matter what state a person lives in — when every American can marry the person he or she loves. We need to remove every vestige of prejudice and discrimination so that all Americans — no matter their skin color, their religion, or their sexual or gender orientation — can experience equality, fairness and justice in their communities," Senator McEachin said.
