From the Warwick Beacon:
The debate on legalizing gay marriage has been in the state spotlight in recent weeks, but for Christopher Plante, it’s been a priority for more than two years.
Plante is the executive director of the National Organization for Marriage’s Rhode Island Chapter, which was formed in 2008, one year after the national organization sprung up to defend against the growing movement of same sex marriage advocates.
“At the time, and still, Rhode Island was a target state of homosexual marriage advocates,” Plante said. “We knew the battlefront was here.”
