Today’s letter – something you can do for California’s budget

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –

I’ve seen your ads all over the place urging voters to vote Yes on the Indian Gaming Propositions on the ballot. You say that will bring millions of tax revenue into the state at a badly needed time.

Should a new Proposition 22 initiative go on the ballot to constitutionally ban gay marriage, I want you to commit right now to doing ads to oppose it. A permanent ban on same-sex marriage would cost California $16 Billion in windfall and $16 Million in annual savings, and sadly alienate millions of Californians from the economy and society.

You could have spoken out against Proposition 22 but instead you silently perpetuated its evil. You could commit right now to fixing that wrong, by committing to support the freedom to marry.

Yours,
