Feinblatt and Mintz


Today's New York Times brings word that John Feinblatt, the Center's founding director and the honoree at our upcoming 15th anniversary party, will marry his partner Jonathan Mintz (the City's commissioner of consumer affairs) later this month. This is big news because Mayor Bloomberg will officiate and the ceremony will take place on the first day that same-sex marriages become legal in New York. I couldn't be happier for John and Jonathan. During their time in government, they have both made enormous contributions to the City, tackling big, important issues like gun violence and financial literacy, while somehow managing not to take themselves too seriously. I'm a big fan of both of theirs and I wish them nothing but peace and prosperity in the days to come.
