CA Democrats breaking down the safeguards of democracy
Original post made by jimf01 on Sep 17, 2013
1 - 3rd District Court of Appeals found the Secretary of State had unconstitutionally placed Gov Brown's tax initiative Prop 30 at the top of the ballot
2 - Governor Brown and Democrats in the Legislature passed a budget trailer bill, SB 71, which included a provision to defund California's Public Records Act, removing the requirement for cities to provide information to the public. This would have greatly harmed public engagement, impact the ability of the press and private citizens to find out what government is doing
3 - AB 110 was signed by the Governor defunds ballot security in several key areas including the mandated second stage review of provisional ballots, and updating county absentee voter lists
passed by Democrats

In Jimbo's own words from a previous post: "Residents of Pleasanton will be glad to learn that residents east of the Altamont Pass, in Tracy and beyond would no longer have a voice in their congressional representation, and vice versa, as in almost every draft version, the natural boundary of the hills east of Livermore divide the redrawn districts."
This has come to pass, which leads me to wonder why Jimbo still posts here in Pleasanton rather than in the county of his residency? If we're supposedly so pleased about political separation from you, why can't you just leave us alone?
