Time is running out to make your opinion known
Time is running out for comments commending the new clear and concise language for the marriage referendum with the Secretary of State. The new proposed wording is: “Do you want to allow same-sex couples to marry?”
The proponents of unnatural marriage are making their position against the new wording known to the Secretary of State and in the media.
It is important for the Secretary to hear from us during this public comment time.
Please go to our Citizen Action Center or e-mail email@example.com to comment. Use these talking points to create your own message:
- Thank the Secretary of State and his staff for excluding the misleading and redundant language about ‘protecting religious liberty’ and for keeping the question succinct and clear.
- Urge Secretary Summers to resist pressure that will re-introduce this “red herring” language concerning
- While we are thankful for the re-wording that includes the word “want,” we espectfully ask him to consider changing it to either “change Maine law” or “redefine marriage.”
- Our goal is to promote the ideal environment for raising children. We are committed to being respectful to our opposition and not demonizing our opponents. We will not use visceral language or backstab those who disagree with us.
In addition, you may call Secretary Summers at 207-626-8400 or by mail at Secretary of State, Attn: Public Comment, 148 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333-0148; or by hand at the Secretary of State’s office at Nash School, 103 Sewall Street, Augusta, Maine.
Public comments must be received by the Secretary of State prior to 5:00 p.m. on July 16, 2012. After the end of the public comment period the Secretary of State has 10 days to determine the final ballot question. For further information, please visit the Secretary
