ag and two mayors on the special election

AG Brown:  These ballot measures were painstakingly negotiated and won enough Republican support to meet the two-thirds’ vote requirement. Yes, they add new revenue, and yes, they impose tough spending cuts. Tell me how else to solve the problem, if not in this manner.

The critics are divided into those who say these propositions don’t spend enough and those who say they spend too much. But neither offers any practical alternatives.

So, given the choices at hand, I urge a yes vote on Propositions 1A-F on May 19.

Note: Brown emphasized that he has not decided whether he’s a candidate for governor.

A – Yes

B – Yes

C – Yes

D – Yes

E – Yes

F – Yes

Mayor Newsom:  I certainly don’t want my yes vote on these two measures to be construed as an endorsement of the terribly flawed process that created them. All of these measures illustrate in the starkest terms why we need a new direction in Sacramento.

A – Yes

B – Yes

C – No

D – No

E – No

F – No

Mayor Villaraigosa:  I’m urging Californians to support the whole bipartisan plan. I know there’s enough in it for everyone to dislike, but take it from a former Assembly speaker: That’s often the ultimate sign that you’re solving problems in the real world.

A – Yes

B – Yes

C – Yes

D – Yes

E – Yes

F – Yes
