Pennsylvania mayor loves to perform weddings
YORK, Pa. -- Robb Green has performed weddings in the bed of a truck, the hall of a museum, the top of a Ferris wheel and in a junkyard.
"The only weddings I won't do are those that involve something illegal or bungee cords," said Green, the mayor of Jefferson.
In Pennsylvania, mayors have the authority to officiate at weddings, and Green has used that power far more than most of his colleagues. He performed his 1,001st wedding on Sunday at the Street Rod Nationals East event at the York Expo Center. Sheryl Sypult and Terry Williams were married in the Williams Street Rod Parts booth.
Green said he would prefer couples use a religious ceremony.
"But if that doesn't meet their needs, I do not judge them," he said.
Green does not offer any counseling before the wedding.
"If they have a valid license, I will marry them," he said.
