Letter about Davids following party line


Fri, May 17th, 2013
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

I am writing this letter in the early morning hours of May 10th, just hours after the State House approved a bill that will make gay marriage legal. I have never been more proud to live in this great state, and I hope that soon the Senate will take the same path to history and place the bill before Gov. Dayton, who will sign it into law.

There is one thing, however, that I noticed while glancing at the names of the votes cast for and against the bill. Greg Davids was on the side of those against, along with most of the other Republicans in the House. This really hit home for me, as before now, I considered Mr. Davids to be a fair man who, for the most part, has people’s best interest at heart. However, I now see that, when push comes to shove, he will follow the party line, which is the main reason for the current stalemate in all forms of government in this country.

This is not an issue of taxes or money. It has nothing to do with public safety, or education. This is strictly an issue of the pursuit of happiness, one which our Founding Fathers felt was a basic human right. Everyone in this state should be allowed to marry whomever they choose, and I think Mr. Davids really dropped the ball on this one.
