 A few months ago, I endorsed Meg Whitman to be the next Governor of California. It wasn’t just apolitical endorsement; it was an endorsement of her vision for California. I want to share with youwhy I feel so strongly about Meg and her vision for our state.I met Meg Whitman under difficult circumstances. A small group of law enforcement leaders metwith her to talk about a dangerous ballot initiative that, had it passed, would devastate publicsafety in California. Proposition 5, or as it was better known – the Drug Dealers Bill of Rights – wasleading in the polls and, according to pollsters, a near certainty to pass. Our campaign to defeatthe measure was short on money and even shorter on time.Meg wanted to learn about the measure, hear from us about why it was harmful, and then askedus what she could do to help. And help she did. When Meg decided to get involved to stopProposition 5, she wasn’t talking about a token effort. Meg invested $250,000 in California’s publicsafety community and helped us turn the tide. She didn’t accept that we couldn’t win. She believedin us, and together we won.Over the course of our conversations, I found that Meg shared my views on public safety – that weneed a balanced approach to fighting crime.But what’s going on today tips the balance too far in favor of criminals and underscores why weneed new leadership in Sacramento. Citing the budget deficit, this week state prison officials beganoffering convicted felons new ways to shorten their sentences. Parolees, in some cases, won’t haveto bother checking in with parole agents. Even if they violate their parole agreements, there is agood chance they won’t go back to prison. Under no circumstances should we ever use the budgetas an excuse to jeopardize the public’s safety.To address prison overcrowding, a serious problem in our state, Meg recognizes we need to buildnew prisons. And if elected, she will demand that the federal government accept fiscalresponsibility for incarcerating the 19,000 prisoners who illegally entered our country.On the front end, Meg believes an improved public education system and results-oriented earlyintervention programs that foster good behavior are critical to our goal of stopping crime before ithappens.On the back end, Meg understands the devastation crime causes to victims and communities.
