In a city with a large percentage of same-sex households and an openly gay vice mayor, a symbolic resolution supporting same-sex marriage seemed like “something kind of simple” to Miami Shores Councilwoman Ivonne Ledesma.
“But what I found was that that wasn’t the case,” she said.
Whether or not to support gay marriage has split Miami Shores, with proponents flying rainbow flags on their immaculate front lawns and opponents speaking out at Village Hall.
Village leaders originally voted down the nonbinding measure on July 15.
A similar symbolic resolution will come before the council again Monday night, introduced by Mayor Herta Holly, who voted “no” the first time around.
