Recommendations for Tomorrow's Elections (CA)

Liberation News recommends people get out to vote tomorrow, to vote NO on Proposition 98, and YES on Proposition 99. In addition, a letter from Attorney Kate Wells urging Santa Cruz voters to vote for Steven Wright for judge is also included.

Proposition 98 would amend the State Constitution to prohibit rent control and eliminate renters’ protections against slumlords. It is being sponsored by the California Apartment Owners Association, the California Association of Realtors, and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. While the fake progressive city of Santa Cruz has no rent control, the elimination of rent control in other cities due to this proposition would result in people loosing their roofs and becoming homeless. Liberation News joins the California Labor Federation, the American Association of Retired Persons, and the League of Women Voters in saying NO on 98.

Proposition 99 would amend the constitution to bar state and local governments from using eminent domain to seize owner-occupied residences and transfer it to commercial developers and other private parties. Such protection from eminent domain abuse will be a positive step forward, while this would also preserve the process for using eminent domain for beneficial projects like schools and hospitals. Most importantly, this measure would leave rent control in place. Proposition 99 states that if it is approved by more votes than Proposition 98, Proposition 98 will not take effect. Liberation News joins the California Labor Federation, League of California Homeowners, League of Women Voters, and the Alliance for Retired Americans, and the Consumer Federation in urging you to vote YES on 99.

In addition, Kate Wells, an attorney who has gone to bat in support of homeless rights and free speech rights in Santa Cruz, would like Santa Cruz voters to see her following message:

To those concerned:

I urge you all to vote for Steven Wright for Superior Court Judge in tomorrow's election. His opponent, Ari Symons, a life-long Republican who suddenly changed her registration to Democrat at the beginning of her campaign, has been declared unqualified to be a judge by the relevant state judicial commission (she appealed the designation and was again found to be unqualified.) She is also a prosecutor in the D.A.'s office and we already have way too many ex-prosecutors on the bench. Wright was the preferred candidate by 75 % of his fellow attorneys; he was found qualified by the state commission; he is a defense attorney and he is a fair-minded, competent and compassionate person. I have personally known Steve for 25 + years and have the highest regard for him. Please pass this on to all of your local email correspondents. Recently, the so-called "Progressive Coalition of Santa Cruz County" has passed out doorhangers endorsing Symons making it appear that she is the progressive candidate - NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH !

Thanks for passing this message on.
Kate Wells
