San Diego City Council Opposes Proposition 8

Timothy Kincaid

October 27th, 2008

The Union-Tribune reports

The San Diego City Council voted 6-2 on Monday to oppose Proposition 8, the Nov. 4 state ballot measure that would institute a constitutional ban on same-sex marriages.

In September of last year, the city voted to file a friend of court brief with the state Supreme Court to overturn the prohibition on gay marriage. At that time it was expected that Jerry Sanders, the city’s Republican mayor, would veto the vote. But instead he tearfully expressed his love for his lesbian daughter and his support for marriage equality.

This is awesome news! Considering that a LOT of the funding for yes on 8 has come from San Diego!

I am SO PROUD to be from San Diego and to have married my partner of 12 years in San Diego back in June!!!

I encourage everyone to send an email of “Thanks!” to everyone that voted in favor of civil equality!

Mayor Sanders
District 1 – Scott Peters
District 2 – Kevin Faulconer
District 3 – Toni Atkins
District 6 – Donna Frye
District 7 – Jim Madaffer

And, for the two gentlemen that chose to oppose equality, here are their email addresses. Do with them as you deem fit:
