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.
