California Ballot Recommendations

8 Oct

I’ve just posted my absentee ballot, and I’d like to share with you my recommendations on measures and candidates I feel strongly about this cycle:

  • NOOOO on Prop. 26! Big Oil is a major stinker this election cycle.
  • Yes on Prop. 25. This important measure ensures a simple majority can pass a budget for the state, the first step in ending our perpetual cycle of fiscal gridlock. Read the LA Times editorial in support.
  • Yes on Prop 24.
  • NOOOO on Prop 23, Big Oil’s attempt to push California back into the energy dark ages.
  • YES on Prop. 21, $18 vehicle licensing fee for parks and wildlife, free admission to all state parks.
  • YES on Prop 19. End prohibition, reduce crime, create jobs and tax revenues, legalize marijuana in California.
  • Tom Torlakson, the best choice for Superintendent of Public Instruction.
  • Re-elect Barbara Boxer to the Senate.
  • Kamala Harris Attorney General.
  • Vote for my favorite politician on social media, the awesome Debra Bowen, Secretary of State.
  • Gavin Newsom for Lt. Governor.
  • Jerry Brown for Governor.
  • In Alameda County: Yes on F,  a $10 vehicle licencing fee to support roads and transit.

    “Re-elect Barbara Boxer to the Senate.”
    ABSOLUTELY CANNOT DO. She is an absolute disgrace, she’s conceited, disconnected and quite frankly hasn’t done anything in the last 18 years in office w/o riding on DF coattails. Tom Campbell was the better option, but MONEY buys elections so let Fiorina in for 1-term, she won’t run twice and then let a progressive democratic candidate and a true conservative run and see how California fares. Keeping Barbara Boxer is a vote to keep California in the pit. Yuck, I must go wash myself now that I’ve said Ms. Boxer’s name so many times.
