State Ballot Measure

WARNING: State Politicians are using “Prop 13” this cycle but it is NOT the same Prop 13 (Taxpayer Protection Initiative) that we passed in 1978. The 2020 Prop 13 is a massive BOND measure.

Prop 13 (2020) Massive Bond Measure for More Debt 

NO

WARNING: State Politicians are using “Prop 13” this cycle but it is NOT the same Prop 13 (Taxpayer Protection Initiative) that we passed in 1978. The 2020 Prop 13 is a massive BOND measure. This debt props up unsustainable bureaucracies and pension liabilities in state and local government agencies. Worse the few dollars that actually trickle down to infrastructure will be spent using backroom deals known as Project Labor Agreements for union-only contractors.

Local Ballot Measures

Measure A – County of San Diego: Amendments to San Diego General Plan 

NO

San Diego needs more housing. The changes proposed in this Initiative would make housing far more expensive in San Diego.

Measure B – County of San Diego: Newland Sierra Amendments to General Plan 

SEE DESCRIPTION:

San Diego county desperately needs more housing units. A YES vote would authorize this housing project; a NO vote would reject it. As Carl DeMaio believes that individual projects should be decided locally by the surrounding community, he recommends ONLY voters of in the surrounding areas of Valley Center, Bonsall, Escondido, and Fallbrook cast a vote on this matter.

Measure C – City of San Diego: Massive Tax Increase 

NO

Deceptively titled “For a Better San Diego – Funding for Homeless & Road Repairs.” This measure would impose a massive tax hike and give city politicians a blank check to spend the money any way they want. This tax hike is not needed and contains insufficient taxpayer protections on where and how the money will be spent. If we really want to address homelessness, let’s start with enforcing the existing laws against vagrancy, pan-handling, and public encampments.

Measure D – City of San Diego: Auditor Independence 

YES

This Charter change would remove the Mayor from the process of selecting the City Auditor – thus ensuring more independence.

Measure E – City of Chula Vista: Discriminatory Contracting – Union Only Requirements 

NO

This measure would invalidate a previous voter-approved requirement that all city contracts be awarded using Fair and Open Competition rather than backroom deals with union-only bidders. This is corruption at its worst!

Measure G – City of Del Mar: Marisol Specific Plan 

YES

San Diego needs common-sense developments.

Measure H – National City: Selection of City Clerk and Treasurer 

NO

This measure would allow the appointment, rather than the election, of the city clerk and treasurer.

Measure J – National City: Ban Retail Sale of Pets 

NO

This measure would ban pet stores that sell pets. National City politicians sure have a lot of time on their hands. Go fill a pothole or get a homeless person off the street first.

Measure K – Oceanside: Selection of City Clerk and Treasurer 

NO

This measure would allow the appointment, rather than the election, of the city clerk and treasurer.

Measure L – BONDS/TAX HIKE: Cajon Valley School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure M – BONDS/TAX HIKE: Chula Vista Elementary School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure Q – BONDS/TAX HIKE: Escondido Union High School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure R – BONDS/TAX HIKE: Lakeside Union School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure P – BONDS/TAX HIKE: Poway Unified School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure S – Lemon Grove TAX HIKE 

NO

Massive tax hike for politicians who can’t stop wasteful spending.

Measure T – BONDS/TAX HIKE: San Ysidro School District

NO

This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.

Measure U – BONDS/TAX HIKE: San Ysidro School District

NO

See above. They are so desperate for debt and tax hikes they put not one, but TWO bond/tax hikes on the ballot. This measure would increase taxpayer debt and impose a massive tax increase – with no requirement that the funds be spent efficiently or awarded on the basis of fair and open competition.
