Transcript MAY 16, 1966/MONTROSE VOICE 3 Letters In Defense of Those 'Don't Vote' Requests From David T. Fowler In response to John Martin's letter (Montrose Voice last week), I believe that Mr. Martin has no understanding of what GPC does. The GPC endorses candidates who are supportive of equal rights and treatment for gays and lesbians. GPC has always stood behind the community, which it still does and will continue to do. There was an article in the GPC Election Tabloid which explained why we decided to ask that people not vote at all in certain races. I can only assume that Mr. Martin did not bother to read the article, or, that he disagrees with the reasons stated for the decision. If he disagrees with the reasons stated in the article, then, he may, as can anyone else, attend a GPC meeting and air his views and state his reasons for disagreement. Many people donate time regularly to enable GPC to have public meetings twice a month and for the Election Tabloid to be written, assembled, and mailed. The fundraising and grunt-work is in addition to the work on screening the candidates who ask to be endorsed and volunteer work in endorsed candidates' campaigns. In short, it takes an enormous effort to do the work of GPC. The people who do the wprk don't appreciate a nasty letter in the paper when the person who wrote the letter can always come to a meeting and give us his opinions in person. Indeed, writing a letter rather than appearing in person seems somewhat cowardly. Gay Political Caucus has always allowed anyone who wishes to address the group time to speak. We welcome any member of the community who wishes to come and express her or his concerns. Editorial note: There is nothing at all cowardly about writing a letter to a local newspaper—about any subject, GPC or otherwise. The article in the GPC Election News stated that among the reasons for urging voters not to vote in certain races was to send a message that certain politicans, who generally enjoy wide gay voter popularity, should not take a GPC endorsement for granted. And Another View From Sam Edwards In response to John Martin's letter last week in the Montrose Voice: the old saying goes ... If you don't vote, don't complain. So Mr. Martin, if you don't do any ofthe hard work; then keep your mouth shut. be surprised, or vindictive, when they are the subject of criticism. Whether one belongs to it or not, one can criticize (or compliment) the GPC, as one can critcize (or compliment) any political organization or politician. Editorial note: It's as American as apple pie to complain—whether one works or not. But perhaps our two letter writers above are too deep in the forest to see tke trees, although no one could argue with their good intentions. The GPC is a private political organization—one of dozens in Harris County. Being suck, if they choose, they can encourage people not to vote in certain races—for whatever reasons. And on the other hand, they should not Items in the "Letters" section represents opinions of some of our readers and not necessarily the views of the MONTROSE VOICE.
