SAN DIEGO COUNTY BALLOT MEASURES   recommendations by San Diego County Democratic Party

 

A

RECOMMEND  NO

PROPOSED “CLEAN-UP” AMENDMENTS TO THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CHARTER

Shall the Charter of the County of San Diego be amended for purposes of making “clean-up” amendments including amendments necessary to assure compliance with
state and federal laws?

*********************************************************************************************************************************************_

B

RECOMMEND  NO

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CHARTER ENTITLED

“PRESERVING BALANCED REPRESENTATION IN UNINCORPORATED AREAS OF
SAN DIEGO COUNTY”

Should the Charter of San Diego County be amended to direct a redistricting commission to maintain the current practice of establishing representative
boundaries where at least three Board of Supervisor districts include unincorporated territory, with two of the districts having area predominately outside incorporated cities,
as population will permit?

*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

C

RECOMMEND  NO

PROPOSED SAN DIEGO COUNTY CHARTER AMENDMENT ENTITLED
“PROTECTING GOOD GOVERNMENT THROUGH SOUND FISCAL PRACTICES”

Should the Charter of San Diego County be amended to require pension stabilization funds be used solely for pension-related liabilities and prohibit using long-term
obligations to finance current operations or recurring needs?

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

D

Recommend a YES vote

  INITIATIVE MEASURE PROPOSING CHARTER AMENDMENTS REQUIRING ALL
ELECTIONS FOR SAN DIEGO COUNTY ELECTIVE OFFICES TO BE HELD AT A
GENERAL ELECTION AND REQUIRING ADOPTION OF LOCAL REGULATIONS
RELATING TO WRITE-IN CANDIDATES FOR COUNTY ELECTIVE OFFICE

Shall this initiative measure, proposing county charter amendments requiring all elections for San Diego County elective Offices to be held at a general election and
requiring adoption of local regulations relating to write-in candidates for county elective office, be adopted?

This measure will end the practice of electing San Diego County incumbents or candidates in the California Primary if one gets 50%, but rather send the “top two” to the general election, same as other offices in California. 

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

BONSALL UNIFIED SCHOOL  DISTRICT   only

EE  Recommend  NO

To improve the quality of education; improve safety and security on all campuses; construct a new high school to reduce student overcrowding; renovate/replace track and
field structures and facilities; shall Bonsall Unified School District issue $38,000,000 of bonds at legal rates, levy approximately 3.75 cents/$100 assessed value, generating
approximately $2,300,000 annually while bonds are outstanding, with annual audits, independent citizens’ oversight, NO money for salaries and all money staying
local?

This misleading measure has failed 5 times before and is intended to build a Bonsall High School inside the Fallbrook planning area on Gird Road.   It asks tax payers for $38 million to build phase one of three phases of a high school that is not needed.  This is a high fire hazard area with only one access road in or out.  Excavation of roadsides would be required to construct more lanes and roads.  Lilac Hills Ranch Developers are encouraging the Bonsall school district to borrow money to build this additional school even though it is not needed under current projections.
