I was horrified to read of the unjust sentence imposed on Marvin
Chavez "Co-op founder gets prison," Front Page, Jan 30]. I ask all
liberty-loving citizens of this state to join me in communicating to
Gov. Gray Davis' office the need to pardon Chavez.

The will of the people who passed Proposition 215 will be subverted
if Chavez is made to serve this very unfair sentence. Governor Davis
can send a clear message to county and local prosecutors that the will
of the people is to be honored and respected. Governor Davis can be
reached at the State Capitol Building Sacramento, CA, 95814, phone
(916) 44502841, fax (916) 44504633. This is much more important than
simply speaking out against the injustice done to Chavez. We must also
stand to protect our right to correct unjust legislation and to enact
legislation through propositions.
