San Diego City Council opens its Big Mouth Again!

I just got this via e-mail. You'll have to cut and paste the e-mail addresses, if you care to let the City Council know what you think.
This is absurd!!!

This Tuesday October 28 at its 10am meeting, the San Diego City Council will vote on a Resolution which states that the City of San Diego officially opposes Proposition 8. This implies to other Cities and States, that you, as a citizen of San Diego, do not support Proposition 8: that you oppose traditional marriage. This Resolution by the San Diego City Council will attempt to be passed without any public polling, rather, the Resolution will be based on the unilateral opinion and decision of the San Diego City Council.

What can you do?:

TODAY!! Call or email the City Council members listed below and tell them that you support Proposition 8. Remind them that they are ELECTED officials, elected to represent the WILL of the people, and not make unilateral statements on behalf of its citizens without proper polling! Urge them to drop the City Resolution on Proposition 8 entirely and not make a statement at all regarding Proposition 8. Tell them that, with regards to Proposition 8, they do not speak for you!!

Please do not hesitate, your call and/or email is urgently needed, please do this now!!
We must all bond together in one loud voice to ensure this Resolution is not passed.

Please forward this to at least ten people asking them to do the same.

I heard that the City Council meeting has been changed to Monday - is that true?

Jennifer Roback Morse said...

I heard that as well. But I honestly don't know. I have been away myself. I have written a letter and I am trying to get someone to read it for me, if the meeting is in fact on Monday.

The City Council has now moved the vote to Monday, October 27 to avoid having to face their constituents.

Sad! Why is it sad? Oviously the City Counsil is made up of smart people who know how to stay out of the personal lives of everyone, and they believe everyone should be treated equally. Vote No on *.

wow, horrible...I got the email yesterday that it was today and I sent an email yesterday morning, and just left my voicemail msg for the councilmembers so I guess I missed the boat (note, my own representative, Scott Peters, who is too busy apparently being council president rather than representing his district, had the phone for the 619 not set to voicemail but I left a msg on the 858 number)...typical council M.O....sheesh...
