Beacon Hill Representative Marty Walz has done the right thing in filing legislation that will return all wedding officiating fees derived by the Boston City Clerk’s office to the general fund. In fact, her bill requires all city and town clerks to do the same.
She along with City Council President Steven Murphy and Councillor Mike Ross are on the same wavelength on this issue.
We hope her bill succeeds.
Our city and town clerks are paid enough without pocketing thousands of dollars worth of wedding officiating fees.
