HOT LOCAL ISSUES WE'RE WATCHING
The eight statewide ballot measures have garnered major
press coverage. At the same time, however, issues 'closer
to home' are clamoring for attention in many counties, cities,
school districts, and special districts. Smart Voter assures
the accessibility of information on measures such as these:
- Sonoma County - Measure
M. Genetically Engineered Organism Nuisance Abatement
Mendocino County's success (March 2004) in banning biotech
crops has sparked activists in other counties to gather
signatures to put this issue to voters.
- Los Angeles County - Measure
J & Measure
Two 'advisory vote only' measures give some high desert
residents a choice of forming the Proposed Antelope
Valley Flood Control District or annexing to the existing
L.A. County Flood Control District.
- Los Angeles Unified School District - Measure
Asks for voter approval for issuance of nearly $4
Billion, yes, that's Billion, in school bonds for repair
- Santa Clara County Cupertino
Measures A, B, and C.
Restrictions on housing density, building heights and
set back lines. Voters will decide on these contentious
growth issues that have divided their community.
It's easy to track local issues. Just enter “ca” in the
“Voting Information” zip code lookup to find the list of
California counties or go to http://smartvoter.org/ca/.
