Dear Marriage Supporter,
In the next four days marriage will be won or lost in New York. We've won many great victories together—in California, Maine, Iowa, Maryland, and Rhode Island—but without you making a call today, marriage will be lost in New York. It's that simple.
Right now there are 30 votes committed to passing same-sex marriage in the New York Senate—29 Democrats and one Republican (James Alesi, R-Rochester). Only two more Republicans need to vote for same-sex marriage for a bill to pass the Senate.
The list below are the key possible Republican swing votes. It is absolutely URGENT that you call all of the Senators below and make clear that you oppose same-sex marriage TODAY!
|Stephen Saland||(845) 463-0840|
|Roy McDonald||(518) 274-4616|
|Andrew Lanza||(718) 984-4073|
|Greg Ball||(845) 279-3773|
|Kemp Hannon||(516) 739-1700|
|Charles Fuschillo||(516) 882-0630|
|Betty Little||(518) 743-0968|
Also, please call Senator Dean Skelos to make clear that the people of New York—not politicians or judges—should define marriage. As Senate Majority Leader he should make sure that this question goes directly to the people.
|Dean Skelos||(518) 455-3171|
Please forward to all of your friends and family. The time to act is now.
