Mayors Speak Out Against Amendment on Gay Marriage

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A bipartisan group of Indiana mayors including those of some of the state's largest cities are speaking out against cementing Indiana's ban on gay marriage in the state constitution.
The mayors of Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville, South Bend and Hammond were among those opposing the proposed constitutional ban Tuesday because they say it would hurt their cities economically and deny equal rights to same-sex couples.
Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, a Republican, wrote southwestern Indiana lawmakers explaining his opposition to the proposed constitutional amendment.
The other 11 mayors announced their opposition in statements distributed by Freedom Indiana, a coalition of business groups and individuals fighting the amendment.
Executive director Micah Clark of the pro-amendment American Family Association of Indiana tells The Indianapolis Star he hasn't asked any mayors to support it.
