Mayor Greg Stanton issued the following statement Monday regarding the state government’s request that the U.S. Supreme Court overturn benefits for same-sex partners at the state level:

“At the City of Phoenix, we recognize diversity as a strength, and we embrace it. Here it doesn’t matter if you’re gay or straight; as long as you get the job done, you’ll get the same benefits. By offering competitive benefits, we are able to attract and retain the most talented people. Offering domestic partner benefits is not just the right thing to do; it is smart management practice.”
