Ballot Measures

Proposition 50: NO

The California Federation of Republican Women have something to say about it.

You will find one ballot measure on the June Primary Ballot- Prop 50. The CFRW recommends a “NO” on Prop 50! This proposition is titled, “Suspension of Legislators”, so many voters will think that this is a good measure protecting them from bad legislators. This bill was authored by Senator Darrell Steinberg in the wake of three Democrat Senators being either indicted or convicted of multiple felonies last legislative session. All three Senators were suspended with pay during the ordeal. At the time, Senator Steinberg was Senate President Pro Tem and attempted to save face with this proposed ballot measure. But Prop 50 does nothing to protect constituents, instead it perpetuates the culture of corruption by not allowing the legislature to expel indicted or convicted felons, but instead suspend them with or without pay. Californians deserve better. Prop 50 is also written so that members of the majority of the legislature could suspend a col-league just for disagreeing over legislation. This is potentially dangerous and unethical. The CFRW does not agree with this smoke and mirrors measure.

Guide: San Bernardino County Republican Party Committee District 4

For voters who live in San Bernardino County’s 4th district in the Republican Party committee, I have my recommendations. Only 5 of the 6 who filed will win a seat. Since none of them are really Libertarians or lovers of the ideas of Ron Paul, I was tempted to vote for the least toxic candidates, but I realized that ALL OF THEM stink in various degrees, the goal for this election is to not vote for all of the candidates possible this year.

I was tempted to vote for Nan Rider because she’s not as fundamentalist as most of the candidates, but she shares Paul Chabot’s values on marijuana. And also for this. So Nan Rider is not receiving my vote even though I appreciate the effort she made in helping me get signatures to get on the ballot in 2002.

My only vote is for Roman Nava, even though he is part of the establishment, he is fair minded.

These are two candidates I obviously NOT going to vote for.

James Na is a decent fellow and is likely one of the best members of the Chino School board, but he is not as secular as I would like him to be.

Benjamin Lopez intimidated both me and Wendy Maier in our runs for State Assembly and works for a group that fights against civil rights for non heterosexual individuals.


If you live in Chino, Chino Hills, South West Fontana, Montclair, Ontario and Upland south of Foothill Blvd and do not like the state of the county party in particular in having Assembly District 41 and 52 not leaning Republican get involved so we can have a broad selection of perspectives in the organization.

Munson’s Picks Part 2

My voter guide continues with this post, we cover Judicial and Non-Partisan local type offices such as boards of education and the Ontario City Council.

California State Supreme Court

YES on Cantil-Sakauye and Moreno

NO on Chin

California Court of Appeal Fourth Appellate District

YES on all, none of them earned any reason to reject them.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Tom Torlakson , since the education establishment basically owns the public schools it is better to get an insider who knows them better.
