Current mayor supports Proposition 8

-A +A
Elected officials are constantly asked to take stands on political issues and Proposition 8 is certainly one political issue worth confronting. I want you to know why I support Proposition 8. First, it restores the definition of marriage to what the vast majority of California voters already approved. It is between a man and a woman. Second, Proposition 8 won’t take away any rights or benefits from gay or lesbian domestic partners. Under California law, “domestic partnerships already have the same rights, protections and benefits” as married spouses (Family Code 297.5) and Proposition 8 will not change this. And finally, it protects our children from being taught in public school that “same-sex marriage” is the same as traditional marriage. This is very important to me. Please join me, Sen. Dave Cox, Assemblyman Roger Niello and many local church leaders in supporting this proposition and voting yes on 8. For further information on Proposition 8, go to protectmarriage.com.
