NEW YORK (AP) — New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will officiate at one of the city's first same-sex marriages — the union of two top staffers in his administration.

Bloomberg spokesman Marc LaVorgna (luh-VORN'-yuh) says the mayor plans to preside over the wedding of John Feinblatt, Bloomberg's chief policy adviser, and Department of Consumer Affairs Commissioner Jonathan Mintz. They've been together for 14 years and have two young daughters.

The nuptials, first reported in The New York Times, are planned for July 24. That's the day that a new state law legalizing gay marriage goes into effect.

Officials have said they expect a rush of interest on that Sunday, and New York City clerks' offices are taking the unusual step of opening on a day when government offices normally are closed.
