Miami Shores Adopts Domestic Partnerships: Sixth Government in Miami-Dade to Do So
Just months after Miami Shores residents elected their first openly gay councilman, village council has unanimously voted to offer domestic partnership benefits to its gay employees. Miami Shores is now the sixth municipal government in Miami-Dade to offer such benefits, following Miami, Miami Beach, North Miami, South Miami, Palmetto Bay, and Miami-Dade County.
"More and more cities are realizing the importance of offering equal benefits to their employees in order to retain and recruit the best and the brightest in today's competitive workforce and Miami Shores is no different," SAVE Dade executive director CJ Ortuño said in a news release.
