Thank you for writing to urge a veto of AB 2567. I appreciate yourFor those of you that do not know what this is about. Harvey Milk was a Homosexual and an activist for his rights He won elections and was mayor of SF (i think). Anyway gay rights people have been fighting for May 22nd to be Harvey Milk day. So on that day Kids will be taught all about him, homosexual lifestyles and activities.
active participation in the democratic process, and I value your
suggestions on how government can better serve the people of California.
I am pleased to inform you that I vetoed this bill after extensive
consideration and thorough deliberation of arguments from both
supporters and opponents of this issue. The public impact of
Harvey Milk's efforts should continue to be recognized at the
local level by those who were most impacted by his contributions.
My veto message for this legislation may be found on the Official
California Legislative Information website: www.leginfo.ca.gov.
Again, I appreciate hearing your opinion on legislation that
affects the future of our great state. Taking the time to
communicate your views and offer suggestions is essential
to good citizenship and good government.
I have nothing against gay people. I think it is a sin but it is their choice and like other sins I can see the person not the sin. But lets get real here. Lets have every activist group submit a report on why their leader should have a dedicated day to honor them. then lets pick from, PETA, Sierra Club, Indians for Casinos, and gay rights to see which one gets it. I think it is ridiculous to single out one activist/interest group. And if this passes then I want a straight day, where we celebrate heterosexual activities.
the fuss is over (for now) and luckily the Govenator vetoed it.
