A Progressive Alamedan

Various writings from a resident of Alameda regarding the political scene. The local perspective of local, state and national politics and a few other odds and ends of local concern. May not be particularly interesting to people outside of the Alameda area.

Scoop! Alameda Democratic Club's Endorsements on the Propositions

Yes, you read it here first! Here are the endorsements from last night's Alameda Democratic Club meeting, where a great set of presentations and lively discussions helped the club reach its conclusions. Note that the 1A-1E measures were not discussed.

83 (sexual offenders): NO
84 (Water Bonds): YES
85 (Parental Notification): NO
86 (Cigarette tax): YES
87 (Oil Severance tax): YES
88 (Parcel tax): NO
89 (Clean money): YES
90 (Government acquisition): NO

I was pleased with the results; I would consider the club's endorsements to be more progressive I would have expected, certainly moreso than the California Democratic Party's recommendations.

I will be providing my analysis/opinions on most of these measures in the weeks to come on this blog; stay tuned!
