VIDEO: Gay families reach out to Sen. David Valesky of New York

According to, New York’s highest-ranking upstate Democrat in the state Senate said he’s rethinking his stance on gay marriage.

Two months ago, Sen. David Valesky, D-Oneida, told the Observer-Dispatch he opposed same-sex marriage in New York state, posing a challenge to a bill proposed by Gov. David Paterson.

Valesky’s spokeswoman, Jessica DeCerce, on Sunday said the legislator, who represents parts of the Mohawk Valley, is undecided.

“Senator Valesky continues to meet with and listen to constituents about the issue,” DeCerce said in an e-mailed statement.

    The message is great, and thanx for getting it out there, but an editorial note….. the video editing is terrible… too many ‘jump cuts,’ it makes it too choppy and difficult to watch. Hire a professional (or a better) film editor. Otherwise… keep up the good work….. loving you from Los Angeles.
