Steve Frank: Position on California ballot measures

In  a few days many of you will receive your absentee ballot in the mail.  I have been asked for my recommendations, how I will vote on the ballot measures.  The easy way to know is this:  I will vote YES on Prop. 5 and Prop.6.  I will vote NO on all the rest.

We can not afford the payoffs of bond measures, the Nanny State control of our clocks by politicians.  Several measure, like  Prop. 8 and 11 were put on the ballot by unions.  Why?  Because they could not get what they want in negotiations with private firms—so they turn to voters to interfere with the relationship between workers and employers.

The key is to vote—either by absentee or at the polls on November 6.  At the same time remember to vote for the GOP Team, from John Cox for Governor down to Assembly, State Senate and congress.

I will not be voting for the Socialist Kevin DeLeon or the smear artist Dianne Feinstein—I would be embarrassed to say I voted for either—that office will be left blank.
