Mayor Coleman, most of St. Paul council host fundraiser for group fighting marriage amendment

Earlier this year the St. Paul City Council passed a resolution opposing the upcoming marriage amendment.

Earlier this year, the St. Paul City Council passed a resolution opposing the proposed marriage constitutional amendment. Now, six of the seven members and Mayor Chris Coleman will host a fundraiser Thursday for the “Vote no” effort.

Council Member Dan Bostrom has stayed out of the marriage amendment fray; he won’t be at the fundraiser and was absent in January when the council voted to opposed the proposal.

But Council Members Amy Brendmoen, Melvin Carter III, Kathy Lantry, Russ Stark, Dave Thune and Chris Tolbert are all on the invitation, along with the mayor.

The June 14 fundraiser is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Faces Mears Park restaurant, 380 Jackson St., St. Paul.
