Governor's strategy is a breath of fresh air

April 13, 2006

On reading the April 11 article about Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's backing the greenhouse gas strategy, I was struck with how pleased I was and startled at my own response because I am a Democrat and have voted that way all my life.

However, that does not preclude my recognizing that we are all in this together, that global warming affects each of us.

If a Republican governor is taking a good political position that will show the rest of the country that we cannot wait for the Bush administration to act, I want him to know that I am totally supportive.

Because most candidates who choose public service actually care about the health of their constituents, I hope that Democratic gubernatorial candidates Phil Angelides and Steve Westly will let the governor know that they are also supportive and can work together to make these changes come about and, if elected, would continue this strategy.

It is not weakness to acknowledge that one's opponent has had an idea that will positively affect the health of every Californian.
