A primer on the propositions: Nine choices before California voters

Original post made on Oct 22, 2010

With nine statewide propositions on the ballot, Pleasanton voters have an opportunity to weigh in on a variety of issues on Nov. 2 ranging from the legalization of marijuana to budgetary reform to global warming. The topic of congressional redistricting is covered in two propositions -- Prop. 20 and Prop. 27--two measures that are essentially seeking to negate one another.

20,23, 26 yes.........22undecided....NO all the rest (no opinion on 19). We must pass 20, 23, 26 for CA to survive. This legislature is not fit to draw the map for redistricting...20 would keep their hands off. This is not the year to pile burden new green regulations & expenses on companies that are already just hanging on & keep them from hiring jobless people..23 would temp postpone these new very costly feelgood requirements until CA jobs & UNemployment recover. And, finally 26 is the only hope taxpayers have to protect us from this union owned legislature. 19 ?? & 22 ?? NO, no, no on everything else !!!

23 offers no incentive for companies to create jobs in California. It actually provides an incentive to NOT create jobs in California, hurting Californians.

Stacey is right. It would be in those companies' best interest to keep the unemployment rate high in California if Prop 23 passes.
