You probably heard that the City and County of San Francisco was going to continue issuing marriage licenses and performing marriage ceremonies throughout the weekend. How can they do this in this age of budget-belt tightening? With the generous help of volunteers:
Wide-eyed with a smile from ear to ear, a rosy face and sweat on her brow, Nani Randall didn’t seem to want to catch her breath Saturday at San Francisco’s City Hall.How cool is that?
Randall, a former law enforcement officer with San Francisco’s public transportation system, is one of about 100 volunteers working in the only county in California performing same-sex marriages over the weekend.
Nearly half a dozen folding tables were set up across one side of the county clerk’s office, where couples met their wedding official after having their marriage license certified.
Most of the volunteers are current or former city and county workers who wanted to be a part of history.
BTW, if you want to watch the parade, there's a live stream here.
