Dane County Executive Joe Parisi issued the following statement regarding U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s decision to overturn Wisconsin’s ban on gay marriage.
 

“Judge Crabb’s decision is a victory for  fairness and equality in the state of Wisconsin.  As someone who fought against the constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage while serving in the legislature, I am thrilled that it has been overturned in the name of fairness. I fully support the right of same-sex couples to marry.”
