This letter will be sent to Governor Schwarzenegger today. (Monday, June 26, 2006)

I am calling on everyone who opposes the Governor signing legislation giving control of LAUSD to Mayor Villaraigosa to join me and my campaign to unite Republicans in calling for a pledge to Veto the pending bill in the Assembly. Once on the Governors desk, for the Governor to Veto the bill.

- David Hernandez

The Honorable Arnold Schwarzenegger
Governor of California
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger:

With both the California State Assembly and Senate controlled by Liberals, the Governor’s Veto is the only hope left for the men, women and families of California. But ability is useless if willingness is not there.

The people of Los Angeles County need your assistance. The actions of Mayor Villaraigosa, the California Legislature and the teacher’s union leaders supporting the mayor’s efforts to take over the Los Angeles Unified School District will result in legislation that takes away control of a duly elected board approved by the voters of the district. This legislation needs to be overturned and vetoed.

Governor Schwarzenegger, We the People of Los Angeles County ask that you exercise your right and duty associated with the Veto. We the People ask that you announce that any legislation regarding LAUSD that circumvents the rights and vote of the people will be vetoed!!

Mayoral takeover may be “bold” but it is destructive to the rights of the people. You yourself have quoted our US Constitution on many occasions and it is “We the People” not a powerful mayor and former legislator twisting arms in Sacramento to gain more power.

Please do not let this become an issue in your election such as that created by Gray Davis when he signed the driver’s license bill for illegal aliens.

One of the most exciting nights of my political history was spent with you on the Recall Election eve and your election as Governor. Every hour sacrificed away from my business and friends was worth it.

Please do not allow this mayoral takeover to occur. Please do not turn me and other Republican supporters into your adversaries.


/s/ David Hernandez

2002, 2004 Republican Nominee, U.S. House of Representatives, District 28
