Today there are elections here in California as well as New Jersey, Virginia and many large cities are holding there citywide elections.
Today voters in California have the opportunity to terminate Arnold’s plan which is already costing the state $50+million. His special election is an unfunded mandate to all local and counties statewide. Never mind the fact that the mid-term primaries are just 5 months away. I hope all of his ideas go down to defeat.
Here’s how I voted.
Proposition 73 (Waiting Period For Termination of Pregnancy)—NO
Proposition 74 (Teacher Tenure)—NO
Proposition 75 (Union Dues Restrictions)—NO
Proposition 76 (Increase Governor's Power To Cut Spending)—NO
Proposition 77 (Arnold's Redistricting Plan)—NO
Proposition 78 (Industry Backed Drug Discount Plan)—NO
Proposition 79 (Consumer & Health Care Groups' Drug Discount Plan)—YES
Proposition 80 (Partial Re-Regulation of Utilities)—YES
Proposition H (Handgun Ban)—No Position
Proposition I (Limit Military Recruiters In Schools)—YES
Two controversial citywide initiatives.
I know I am on the losing end on this one but I think as citywide ban on legal hand gun sales is a dumb idea that hasn’t worked in any other city. It’s nothing more than just feel-good politics.
The other is to place restrictions on military recruiters at our high schools. I am enthusiastically supporting this measure which will pass by a landslide.
