Statewide Ballot Measures
Yes on Proposition 42
Proposition 42 is a state constitutional amendment to require local government to provide open meetings and public records access. These basic democratic practices are currently state government mandates, which require reimbursement. In the last budget crisis these mandates were suspended, allegedly to allow the state to save the money otherwise spent on reimbursing local governments' costs of following the mandates.
We support Proposition 42. Openness in local governments shouldn't be conditional on state budget deals.

The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today: my own government...I cannot be silent. -- Martin Luther King Jr., "Beyond Vietnam", April 4, 1967
To celebrate the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. we must really analyze some facts that made people (even his own colleagues) uncomfortable. On April 4, 1967--exactly one year before he was killed--at the Riverside Church in New York City, he gave his seminal speech: "Beyond Vietnam--A Time to Break the Silence."
Dr. King's colleagues begged him not to conflate the "war at home" with the Empire's wars abroad. He rejected that and said, (among other brilliant things in just this one speech):
