SheRISES votes “No” against Associate Justice of the State Supreme Court, Carol A. Corrigan, who failed to support equal marriage rights in her court in 2008.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Tony K. Thurmond

 

 

Proposition 1 – Bonds: Affordable Housing 

SUPPORT

Proposition 2 – Bonds: Housing for Mentally Ill

SUPPORT

Proposition 3 – Bonds: Water Systems; New Dams

OPPOSE

Proposition 4 – Bonds: Children’s Hospitals

NO ENDORSEMENT. SheRISES questions the fact that most of the benefit will go to private hospitals.

Proposition 5 – Property Tax Change

OPPOSE

Proposition 6 – Gasoline Tax Repeal

OPPOSE

Proposition 7 – Permission for Legislature to Eventually Opt Out of or Change Daylight Savings Time Period

SUPPORT

Proposition 8 – Kidney Dialysis Price Controls

NO ENDORSEMENT. While this measure would increase taxpayer cost, it appears to be a private battle between unions and corporations.

Proposition 10 – Allow Municipalities to Control Rents

SUPPORT

Proposition 11 – EMT On-Call 

OPPOSE

Proposition 12 – Farm Animal Confinement

OPPOSE. SheRISES supports animal welfare and rights, but Prop 12 weakens Prop 2 Guidelines approved in 2008, and is a setback. Enforcement will be difficult and costly. We are waiting for better legislation to genuinely protect all animals.

 

 

Measure M – County Parks Funding (one-eighth of one cent per dollar, that is, a 0.125% Retail Sales Tax, to expire March 31, 2029)

SUPPORT

Most Sonoma County communities have measures on the ballot; please consider supporting your local community for valid measures, such as Measure J and Measure U in Monte Rio.

SUPPORT

  
SheRISESmeets monthly to empower, support, network, educate and strengthen ourselves and one another in our collective and individual responses to the Resistance movement in this country.
