Ovens and Mur- ray Ad­ver­tiser, read­ing.

Cr O’Con­nor and the other coun­cil­lors are en­ti­tled to their view­point on same-sex marriage, just as any other cit­i­zen is in a free and demo­cratic so­ci­ety.

How­ever, this does not give them li­cence to pass res­o­lu­tions which say the coun­cil sup­ports this change to the marriage law.

There is a sub­stan­tial num­ber of res­i­dents that sup­port the tra­di­tional view of marriage.

They are en­ti­tled to their view­point and to have it re­spected.
