Dear Governor Schwarzeneggerby Angie

Dear Governor,

I was shocked and dismayed to learn that you are publicly encouraging the legal backlash against Proposition 8. This issue was decided democratically by the voice of the people – the same way that you were elected to office! You are responsible for upholding and promoting the will of the people, and the people have spoken very clearly multiple times on this issue.

Please respect the convictions of your constituents. Please respect our right to vote, and our right to express a moral opinion on societal questions. Please respect the democratic process by upholding the passage of Proposition 8.

Thank you,
Angela Hoffman

Yes, I actually sent this email to the Governor, in response to his public “disappointment” that prop 8 passed:,0,4429002.story

I’m kind of amazed at myself… Anyway, if anyone else would like to do the same, you can contact the Governor’s office via this website:

    I’m so proud of you for writing this letter. Good for you. You are absolutely right in sending it too. Anyone who is in an elected public office should be supportive and respectful of the voice of the people. We need more people like you in this world.

    Good for you. If he’s going to ignore over half of his constituency, he shouldn’t be in office. I’m heartily disappointed in him – I thought that he was better than that.

    Wow, Angie! I, too, am so impressed with your letter. So well written – short, yet powerful in its content. If only every Californian who feels like you (and I’m sure there are many) could follow your example! Way to go!
