subject: support marriage & prop 22
Good Afternoon City Council Members,
Although this is a vitally important issue, to stand for traditional marriage, the item before you has no place before this council. For the following reasons:
1. Prop 22, with over 61% majority, affirmed society’s time tested support of marriage between a man and a woman. You have no right or reason to disregard the will of the voters of California. You are elected to represent the people not to impose social experimentation upon them.
2. Since your voters have already decided this issue, why spend time revisiting this when you are plagued by multiple other city problems that remain unsettled.
3. Lastly, a vote today to involve yourselves in this item before the courts will not force the courts hand, but will be a slap to the face of your voters.
To members, Faulconer, Maienschein, Young and Fry, I thank you for voting against the City’s intrusion in an issue the people have already decided. To the rest of you, I ask that you reconsider and vote no this time. Remember, San Diego, thankfully, is not San Francisco or LA. Voters are overwhelmingly for what is best for society and children -traditional marriage. And the voters will remember your vote today.
East County CRA President
