New­som ig­nores vot­ers

The Tribune (SLO) - - Opinion -

Re­gard­ing: “Sup­port the death penalty in Cal­i­for­nia?” (March 14), Gov. Gavin New­som ne­glects to take into con­sid­er­a­tion that Cal­i­for­nia vot­ers de­cided to keep the death penalty in 2016, and speed up the process. As a fu­ture voter, I would hope my gover­nor would re­spect the opin­ions of the ma­jor­ity of vot­ers. Al­though the death penalty is flawed, it needs to be re­formed, not abol­ished. One of New­som’s cam­paign prom­ises was to re­spect the wishes of the peo­ple about the death penalty. Do you think New­som can look into the eyes of the fam­ily and friends of mur­der vic­tims, and tell them that their mur­der­ers de­serve to live? – Lya Abel, Paso Robles
