How I'm Voting...

Here are some rough notes for those of you who are interested...

This is incomplete still but what I've figured out so far:



BB - money to fix Bart- yes

C- yes

D- yes





L- yes

M-No - looks like more spending on unneeded bureaucracy.


S - Medical Pot - Yes!

Governor - Gray Davis





52 yes -- voter registration!


Marvin R. Baxter - no
see the list of bad decisions for yourself, including:
School administrators may detain minor students without reasonable suspicion

Kathryn M. Werdegar-no
appointed by Deukmejian (a horrible gov from years back)

James J. Marchiano - yes
Judge of the year Alameda/Contra Costa Trial Lawyers Association - 1990.

William J. Stein - No
also appt by the duke

He authored this opinion:
Sporadic racial insults do not constitute unlawful harassment

Linda M. Gemello - yes
San Mateo Trial Lawyers Association lawyer of the year - 2000

Mark Simons- can't tell. abstaining

Gail Dekreon - seems ok

Me A to Z (A Work In Progress)

Not trying to start a political debate, but I'm curious:

D - why should the government get into business competing against existing corporations? If folks aren't happy with the CA power companies (and I can understand why) isn't the answer regulation/etc., as opposed to making the city into a utility company?

R - what's wrong with letting property owners make more money from their property? If you don't like it, you're free to go elsewhere and use other folks' property. Rent control is a joke. There are billionaires living in rent-controlled apartments, so the present "rent control" system obviously doesn't work, so punishing landlords doesn't seem very fair.

Just curious. I'm not in CA any more, so it doesn't affect me directly and I can't vote, but I'm just curious why you chose as you did in these cases.
