October Meeting – League of Women Voters Explain the Ballot Measures!
Confused about the vast array of propositions on the November 8 ballot? We are, too. Looking at the list, one sees an education bond, a Medi-Cal funding measure, a vanity measure put forward by a right-wing multimillionaire, a measure to give special interests new powers to block legislative action, an extension of the millionaires tax to fund education, a cigarette tax to fund healthcare, an advisory vote on Citizens United, two death penalty acts, a drug price relief act, an adult film measure, a marijuana act, and on and on and on.
If you think this system of legislating by ballot box has hit critical mass, you are correct. Luckily, we have the PV League of Women Voters to explain the measures to us and to add some clarity to a confusing situation. The League studied the ins and outs of the various measures so you and I don’t have to, saving us uncounted hours of our precious time.
As you know, the League is a nonpartisan group that works to ensure voters have access to the ballot box and are informed about candidates and issues. This year they will be conducting a candidate forum on Thursday, October 6 at Hesse Park in RPV at 7 pm. If you miss that one, they will be conducting another at Toyota Hall in the Torrance civic center. The candidates for US Representative and for the 66th Assembly District will answer questions submitted by the public.
So, please come to our meeting on October 16th, at the Peninsula Center Library. Come at 2pm to network and enjoy our homemade goodies. The program will start at 2:30 pm. See you there.
