Salt Lake City, UT, 20 December 2013Utah Sen. Jim Dabakis speaks to the crowd waiting hopefully for the Salt Lake County Clerk’s office to reopen for same-sex marriage license applicants late Friday night.   Clerk Sherrie Swensen’s staff closed the doors to new registrations after the office’s usual 5 PM closing time.  Dabakis stated he would work all night to meet with Swensen to discuss the importance of opening the Clerk’s office for Saturday business in support of this historic event.   Dabakis, an openly gay Utah State Senator, was married to his partner of 27 years earlier in the day by Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker.
