Eleven Survivors on November Ballot

Pete StahlWelcome, voters!

Twelve statewide propositions qualified for the November 2018 ballot. The state Supreme Court, however, has voted Prop 9 off the island, so now there are just eleven. This fall, you'll get to decide which of the remaining ones will stay, and which will be consigned to the ignominy of defeat.

Over the next few weeks I will analyze and recommend positions on these eleven. The issues range from the serious and consequential (homelessness, hospitals, rent control) to the trivial and annoying (ambulance driver lunch breaks, dialysis fees). I intend to treat each proposition with the dignity it deserves.

Stay tuned, and check the ratings page from time to time to see what's fresh and new.

Happy voting,
Pete Stahl
