Peter Ueberroth on Civil Rights

2004 former Republican Challenger CA Governor

Same-sex rights but not same-sex marriage

Q: Same-sex couples in California would receive most of the same legal benefits as married couples under a bill passed by the legislature. The bill allows one partner to take custody of children if the other partner dies, gives partners the right not to be forced to testify against each other in court and gives them the same rights at married couples to transfer and share property. Would you sign it if you were governor?

UEBERROTH: As you explain it, in the short, sound byte form which I do not think that you can do anything in government, I would sign it. But I [support] marriages between a man and a woman, the sanctity of marriage. I do not believe that marriage is for same-sex couples.

Will investigate Prop 54 and decide before the election

Q: Do you support Proposition 54, which prohibits local governments from collecting race related data?

UEBERROTH: I got to know Ward Connerly-who is championing this bill-when I was asked during the last recession to help on the recovery. I would like to talk to him and understand what he is doing exactly and understand the issue better. I'm the neophyte here. And I'll have to find out my decision and have it before the election.
