    Saturday, December 04, 2004

    An Open Letter and Invitation To:

    Supervisor Michael Antonovich
    Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Fifth District

    Sent by email to: fifthdistrict@bos.co.la.ca.us

    Also Sent by Regular Mail To:
    869 Hahn Hall of Administration
    500 West Temple Street
    Los Angeles, CA 90012

    Dear Hon. Michael Antonovich:

    I would like to invite you to speak at one or both informational meetings regarding the removal of the cross from the Los Angeles County Seal, that we are sponsoring on Tuesday, December 14 at 7:30 PM and Saturday, December 18 at 2:00 PM. Since the meeting will be held In Agua Dulce, CA which is part of your district, I am inviting you or one of your employees to come and speak for up to ten (10) minutes. Please let me know no later than 1 pm on Friday, December 10, 2004 by calling (818)757-1776 if you or one of your employees can come.

    I would like to introduce myself. My name is Robert Colaco. I am the Volunteer National Chairman and Founder of Citizens For A Better America® with the acronym and website of [CFABA.ORG]. I began CFABA.ORG on October 15, 1992 for the primary purpose of electing Morality and Values based candidates to public office from the very lowest to the very highest political positions all over the U.S.A. We are also involved in supporting and opposing ballot measures, propositions, petition drives and recalls. We endorsed the recent successful recall of Governor Gray Davis early in the campaign on February 21, 2003. You can see our News Release by clicking on the following link: [http://www.cfaba.org/cf06022.htm].

    We believed the removal of the little cross from the Los Angeles County Seal was so important that we added a question on our CFABA.ORG Candidate Questionnaire ™ which stated:

    35. On June 1, 2004, Los Angeles County, California, the most populated county in the U.S.A., with almost ten million (10,000,000) residents, or more population than the entire population of forty two (42) states voted to remove the little cross from their county seal. This was a three (3) to two (2) decision to negotiate with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) over its threat to sue unless a small cross is removed from the county seal, rather than to fight the threatened lawsuit.

    Zev Yaroslavsky one of the three (3) voting for removal said: "I don't personally believe that any religious symbol on any government seal is appropriate."

    Do you believe that Christian religious symbols and names should be removed from city, county, state, federal government entities in the U.S.A.?

    [ ] Yes, I do.
    [XX ] No, I do not.
    [ ] I Don't know.

    If you would like to see the responses to our only endorsed candidate in California for the November 2nd, 2004 election you can click on the following link: [http://www.goodguyslist.org/USA/us01008.htm]. To see a list of all three (3) candidates endorsed nationwide in three states you can click on the following link: [http://www.goodguyslist.org/gg02003.htm]

    I spoke before the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on June 15, 2004 to support your resolution to allow the voters of Los Angeles County to have a vote as to whether their seal is to be changed.

    I am deeply disappointed that your fellow supervisors Burke, Molina and Yaroslavsky did not want to act by Democratic principals and give the voters an opportunity to vote on the issue. I will be sending each of them a letter extending the same invitation to them as a group. They voted as a block, so we are allowing them one speaker to answer questions about why they did not allow a vote by the people. I will be sending you a copy of the letters I am sending them.

    I would like to thank you and Supervisor Don Knabe publicly for your efforts, to not cave into the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) threats. I know from your website that you are well aware the petition drive to keep the 1957 seal, has until March 1, 2005 to obtain the necessary 341,212 signatures to end the efforts of changing the seal.

    You may not be as aware of our efforts to advocate for the success of this petition drive. We are calling the registered voters of Acton and Agua Dulce and inviting them to attend this meeting. We are also beginning a brand new website dedicated toward our efforts in this movement entitled: [http://www.KeeptheCross.com]

    I hope you or one of your employees are able to come and speak about this issue. Supervisor Antonovich, I met you many years ago at a political function and have appreciated your willingness to stand and fight for the issues that you care about, and I am thrilled that many times those issues are in agreement with positions we at CFABA.ORG have taken. On behalf of Citizens For A Better America® I would like to thank you for all that you have done to not allow the ACLU to run the County of Los Angeles, California.

    Again, it is my hope the you or one of your employees are able to come and address our meeting and the registered voters that we are inviting to come. May God Bless You and your family during this Christmas season and may God Bless the County of Los Angeles.

    With All Sincerity,
    Robert Colaco
    Volunteer National Chairman, Founder
    Citizens For A Better America® [CFABA.ORG].

    c.c. Supervisors Yvonne Brathwaite Burke, Gloria Molina
    and Zev Yaroslavsky
    c.c. Supervisor Don Knabe
