OWL is a member of CARA (CA Alliance for Retired Americans) and is forwarding to our members CARA’s recommendations on some of the CA Propositions in the November 8 election.
CARA’S RECOMMENDATIONS ON STATE BALLOT MEASURES
CARA’s Board and Legislative Committee reviews all of the measures that qualify for the statewide ballot and makes decisions to support, oppose or take no position on these measures. In order to win support or opposition, these measures must have a direct impact on seniors and our families and be approved by CARA’s leadership (with a consensus vote whenever possible). This year, there are 7 measures on the state ballot, and CARA was unable to get a consensus or even a clear majority on 3 of the measures, so CARA is taking NO POSITION on them.
The other four measures listed below are part of the slate card that CARA is sending to all convention participants and senior voter lists and posting on their website and in social media.
Prop. I: Right to Reproductive Freedom – YES
Prop. 28: Art and Music K-12 Education Funding Initiative – YES
Prop. 29: Dialysis Clinic Requirements – YES
Prop. 31: Flavored Tobacco Products Ban Referendum – YES
