Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva made a surprise announcement at this week's city council meeting. "His honor" will be joining couples in marriage at city hall.
Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva announced at last night's city council meeting he was newly ordained on Monday.
So now Mayor Silva will assume another duty at city hall.
He'll be performing marriages.
Silva says his calendar is already filling up.
"Folks have been contacting me and at first I thought they were joking, and they're not so I scheduled my first wedding on June 7th, I will be marrying people in Stockton so if you're interested in coming to the city council steps, hey."
Mayor Silva has a pretty full plate what with crime, and Stockton's bankruptcy.
The mayor says he might be able to turn that to the city's advantage.
"So maybe we can make some revenue off of it for the city, I don't know...so get married by the mayor."
Because of budget cuts from Stockton's bankruptcy, you probably want to bring you own rice if you plan to be married by the mayor.
