"Our love for one another, covering four generations, four New England states, and marriages that have lasted decades, is the kind of family portrait that those in opposition to same-gender marriage would want you to believe does not exist. . . .
We have lived in Maine for all these years because we love this state. We love its values, its independence, its commitment to life as it should be.
I ask that you who believe in fairness, the rights of all individuals, and who hold a belief that family values count, join me and my family in voting 'No on One' in November."
--Margaret Daros, the mother of a gay son, in the Portland Press Herald
