Coleman Shows His Colors on the Wabasha Bridge

Mayor Chris Coleman isn’t hiding his beliefs this morning, as he announced by tweet his decision to rename Wabasha Freedom Bridge the “Freedom to Marry Bridge” for the week.

In advance of today’s Senate vote on same sex marriage (assumed to pass by a fair margin), city workers were out at 6 a.m. hoisting rainbow-hued flags up along the bridge, marking the occasion. Governor Dayton has already declared his intent to sign the bill if it passes, making the law all but certain.
