This video by Marie Cunninham shows in further detail the story behind Porterville, the only city in California to pass a resolution in support of Prop 8.
Now, the city council of Porterville, located in the Central Valley, is considering a resolution that would oppose Senate Bill 54, which would allow California to recognize legal same-sex marriages performed outside its border.
Former Mayor and current council member, Cam Hamilton, is shown in the video. He's been the driving force behind the anti-marriage equality resolutions. Shortly after the interview in the video taken post Prop 8's passing, Cam was replaced as mayor by Pete McCracken. However, despite this change, the anti-LGBT resolution against SB 54 is still being considered. Currently, Cam is drawing up a draft the council will later vote on.
