Assemblymember Mark Leno attended a press conference and rally Sunday to support Proposition H, the San Francisco Clean Energy Act, and to oppose Proposition 8, a measure on the state ballot that would “eliminate same-sex marriages” in California.
“What Prop H does is lays out a process,” Leno said, “so experts will testify, reports will be written, and the PUC (San Francisco Public Utilities Commission) will make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. That’s all Prop H does.”
On Proposition 8, Leno said: “It would repeal constitutionally guaranteed rights for law-abiding, tax-paying citizens.”
“So what these two measures have in common is that our adversaries can’t sell their message honestly because it’s not a message that voters like,” Leno said.Â “They have to reinvent it and, in fact, try to sell the voters a less than truthful message, some might even call them lies.”
