Vigil Called to Support Governor Tonight

A candlelight vigil has been called by Jacob Whipple, organizer of the All For One Initiative, to support Utah Gov. Jon M. Huntsman for his announcement that he favors the Common Ground Initiative and same-sex civil unions.

“Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. has been a progressive politician, so much so that many call him a RINO — Republican In Name Only,” said Whipple in a statement. “I dont think that you have to be a Democrat to see injustice and want to correct it. I think any strong leader should stand up for any controversial matter that he believes in.”

Whipple believes the governor has done just that, and wants Utahns who support the governor’s views to show support to him by attending a vigil tonight at the Governor’s Mansion, 603 East South Temple, at 8:00 p.m.

(An earlier time was originally planned, but conflicted with a Family Rally at the Utah State Capitol Building that runs rom 6 to 8:00 p.m.)

Whipple is also asking people to write a letter telling the governor what his support means to them and they will be hand delivered to Huntsman.

“You can bring the letter with you or email it to me and I’ll print it off and bring it,” Whipple said.

His email address is [email protected]
