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. In response to newly-elected republican majorities in both state houses expressing a commitment to eliminate the marriage law in the upcoming legislative session, Gov. Lynch has remained steadfast in stating he will veto any such discriminatory measure.
