I’m not one to constantly defend EQCA, but this is a fact. So I ask you to be more specific in what is it you want. What kind of event/town hall do you want and what issues do you want them to address?
the community was not ‘shocked’ geoff kors FINALLY resigned in late december. his departure was long overdue.
another thing that is not shocking is how you again fail to raise the issue of regular town hall meetings hosted by EQCA. that is the same approach you took when you wrote cheerleading piece after cheerleading piece about EQCA when they were not holding town halls as they looked for a new ED.
roland can blather on all he wants about the community taking ownership of the battle to defeat the ballot prop over SB 48, but he first has to address the lack of community ownership toward EQCA. beyond a recent cocktail reception in SF, i am not aware of any democratic engagement by roland and EQCA since he took over.
i guess they’re still not ready for prime time and he clearly did not hit the ground running. oh, well, nothing much to worry about in that roland is consulting with kors!!
when our opponents read this piece, i’m sure they’ll understand the 2008 playbook that lost us gay marriage and prop 8 is the same playbook EQCA will use in 2012. the TVC and their partners are on their way to another victory and they have NOTHING to worry about with EQCA and mark leno in charge of california gays.]]>
In a referendum the voters essentially take on the role of legislators and have the right to either pass the bill (Vote Yes) or defeat the bill (Vote No).
As we saw during Prop. 8, the Yes vs. No confusion can be a huge factor. In order to succeed we’ve got to get this one right from the get go.
