Dear Mr. Rogers.
As you know, there will be a proposed constitutional amendment on the May 8, 2012, ballot in North Carolina. I am writing to find out where Duke Energy stands on this initiative.
Excerpting from the actual bill:
The question to be used in the voting systems and ballots shall be:
[ ] FOR [ ] AGAINST
Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.
You will be tempted, no doubt, to avoid taking a stand, but you should know that silence on this issue will be interpreted as support for discrimination. Which brings me to two specific questions:
- Will Duke Energy stand for equality and oppose Amendment One?
- Will Duke Energy refrain from contributing to any candidate for any office who supports Amendment One?
We await your response.
