Marriage not on Town’s radar
TOWN of Cambridge is yet to “come out” on its position on marriage equality.
The cities of Bayswater and Fremantle councils at their respective general meetings on the same night in April voted to lobby the Federal Government in support of marriage equality.
The move came five years after the City of Vincent made WA history in December 2012 under former Mayor Alannah Mactiernan with the establishment of the State’s first Relationship Declaration Register, which provides gay and straight couples with a formal recognition of their relationship.
But Cambridge chief executive Jason Buckley confirmed the growing support from other Perth councils has not yet inspired Cambridge to follow suit.
“The Town has not formed a position on marriage equality,” he said.
He did not respond to the Western Suburbs Weekly’s question if there were plans to in the near future.
