In a recent interview published in The Augusta Chronicle (Sunday, July 11) district 24 state Senate seat candidate Jim Whitehead was asked this question regarding "marriages" for so-called homosexuals: "Should the state recognize or prohibit same-sex marriages?"
Mr. Whitehead responded with, "I can't say what the state should do, I can only tell you what my convictions are, and I would not vote to recognize same-sex marriages."
Now, let's get this straight: Mr. Whitehead is attempting to unseat state Senator Joey Brush -- yet Whitehead cannot say that our Georgia state government should prohibit same-sex marriages, only that he wouldn't vote to recognize them? Interesting, and somewhat confusing. Whitehead sounds a bit like Democratic Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, huh?
Responding to the same question as to whether the state should prohibit same-sex marriages, Senator Brush clearly replied, "Yes, we thought it was important in the state Senate, that's why we passed the proposed constitutional amendment this year."
For bold and clear representation for all of district 24 (not just Martinez-Evans), the choice is clear. The choice is Brush!
