Today, the Sarasota City Commission unanimously passed a domestic partner registry.
For months Equality Florida, led by board member Ken Shelin, has worked to pass a registry in Sarasota. Sarasota now joins other west coast cities that have passed registries recently, including Tampa and St. Pete.
The registry will take effect in 52 days, beginning in December 2012. We will post more information for couples who want to register as those documents become available.
Thank you to the entire Sarasota City Commission, all of whom voted in favor of the registry.
