[Breaking] Sarasota Passes Domestic Partnership Registry

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.

City of Sarasota Moves on Domestic Partner Registry

Last night the City of Sarasota voted to move forward on creating a domestic partnership registry. 

The unanimous vote by the Sarasota City Commission directed the City Attorney to draft language, that if passed, would make Sarasota the most recent city in Florida to adopt a domestic partnership registry. Recently, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Orlando, Orange County and Volusia County have all adopted registries.
