VT Rep Trombley sends snotty reply to marriage activists

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

This from Euripides:

On April 7, 2009, the Vermont State Assembly voted to overrule the governor's veto and successfully neutered marriage in that state, allowing the state to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Marriage advocates who had organized to fight on behalf of marriage were largely ignored. The governor was ignored. The majority of people in the state were ignored. Yet, the damage was done. The state redefined this fundamental social institution.

As part of the push on behalf of marriage, I called certain of Vermont's Assembly members and emailed all of them. Just the other day, I received an email reply from Ira Trombley, a member of the State Assembly:

  You must have a computer virus. Your email, below, is identical to others.
Why would someone in far off, sunny AZ try to influence a domestic issue in tiny VT?
Doesn't AZ have an economic crisis to solve?
I did not like what AZ did to the housing market, but I did not bombard AZ with thousands of emails.

The Honorable Ira Trombley
115 State Street
State House
Montpelier, VT 05633-5501

Other marriage advocates received the same type of email - a form email - from Mr. Trombley.

Mr. Trombley, in response to real concerns about neutering marriage, gives a joke of an answer. He shows a complete lack of understanding of the national import that Vermont may have on neutering marriage. He shows a lack of understanding of organized political advocacy. He also demonstrates a flippant and denigrating response to a very real and serious query.

Thanks for reposting. I could not believe that anyone could act so naive over such an issue as same sex marriage. Maybe the Vermont Assembly is infected with politicians such as this Assemblyman?
