Santa Fe County Clerk Geraldine Salazar became a hero to dozens of same-sex couples Friday when she began issuing them licenses to marry.

But Salazar, a former employee of the Department of Health and outreach coordinator for what was then called the Santa Fe Rape Crisis Center, is a careful, cautious public servant.

    County Clerk Salazar is wise to have continued on her careful path. She has assured the same sex couples that their marriage licenses will withstand legal threats.
    She correctly responded to the suit filed against her that the suit belonged in District Court, not in the Supreme Court...as the Supreme Court directed. So District Judge Singleton's ruling & order opened the door to issuing the licenses...and County Clerk Salazar was able to do what she always wanted to be legally able to do - issue the licenses. Great job, Geraldine! Thank you for supporting our citizens. [smile]

    Take chances. Do the right thing regardles of the consequences. Be that person who leads instead of follows. You will be surprised at the support you will have at the end of the day.
