San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts said that he was “overjoyed” by Friday’s high court ruling that same-sex marriage was protected by the U.S. Constitution.

“As a gay man in a committed relationship for more than 17 years, I am overjoyed by the Supreme Court’s decision,” Roberts said. “(Partner) Wally and I can now show our six adopted foster kids that people who love each other, and want to demonstrate their commitment through marriage, will be treated equally under the law.”

Roberts, elected in 2012, is the only gay member of the Board of Supervisors.
