Many New Yorkers have strong opinions about gay marriage, but State Senator Hiram Monserrate remains silent on whether he is for or against Governor David Paterson's gay marriage bill. That has some of Monserrate's constituents in East Elmhurst, Queens questioning his leadership.
Constituents wanted to hear what freshman State Senator Joseph Addabbo has to say about gay marriage.
"He needs to make a decision, quick," said one Queens resident. "A lot of people are interested in knowing."
But on Friday they did not know, as Addabbo would not respond to the question of how he would vote on legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.
