Voice for Equality: Gov. John Lynch of NH

John Lynch is the current governor of New Hampshire. He was first elected in 2004 and has been re-elected every two years since.

Although originally opposed to a freedom to marry law in New Hampshire, Gov. Lynch signed a marriage equality bill into law on June 3, 2009, making New Hampshire the fifth state in the U.S. to allow such unions.

Lynch has remained steadfast in stating he will veto any such discriminatory measure.
