It has been reported lately that most Californians who are considered likely to vote this Fall still know very little about the propositions, even the very significant Water Bond.
The American River Democrats will be focused on the upcoming fall election again this month, with a focus on certain ballot initiatives.
Rick Bettis, from the League of Women Voters, will be on hand to share some information on Proposition 1, the Water Bond. We all know that California is in a historic drought, but is the water bond before us the right answer for farmers, the environment, smart growth, and people in our region? Get educated and make a smart vote in November.
We will also discuss the measure, Proposition 47, that intends to reduce sentencing for non-violent crimes, and make many of them misdemeanors. Will this increase crimes, such as burglary, vandalism, auto theft, etc., in order to save money in prison and jail maintenance? Or is it a good idea to stop locking up people whose crimes might be considered minor?
If we have time, we will also discuss Proposition 46, which affect the medical profession in malpractice judgments, and many other ways.
Join the American River Democrats Wednesday, September 17 to learn about these issues, and consider some candidate endorsements as well.
The America River Democrats August Meeting will be at Samurai Sushi, Wednesday, September 17, 12251 Folsom Bl, Rancho Cordova. We begin our gathering at 6:30 for social time and a chance to order food or drinks. The official meeting will begin at 7:00 pm.
Samurai Sushi is near the Hazel exit from the 50 freeway on Folsom Blvd.
