History isn’t always made during epic events.
Sometimes it takes only a $30 check and two signatures.
When Jennifer Whitton and Tana Trejillo signed their civil union certificate last Wednesday morning at the Jeffco clerk and recorder’s office, staff members interrupted what they were doing to applaud.
It was the first same-sex civil union in Jefferson County.
Whitton and Trejillo, together five and a half years, were all smiles as they handed over the $30 check to the county.
