Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2007 | Dear Donna Frye: My partner and I were greatly disappointed by your vote at City Council Tuesday.
Instead of voting to support the gay community, the community that voted to support you when you ran for mayor, you cast a vote for yourself. You cast a vote to make yourself the object of attention. You cast a vote of selfishness and betrayal. You cast a vote against me and my partner.
You call it procedure. You said that, even though it fell within the law of the Brown Act, the fact that the item was noticed on Thursday was not good enough. I wonder how many times you voted on a supplemental issue that was noticed on a Friday? Countless, I’m sure. Nope, this wasn’t about procedure.
This was about you. You, you,you. My partner and I supported you in your mayoral campaigns. We made the phone calls and knocked on the doors. We wrote you checks, waved signs, wore your stickers. We never thought you would have so little respect for us that you would treat us in this way. We will never support you again. I hope you understand; it’s about procedure for us, too. You don’t support us, we don’t support you.
