Statewide Ballot Measures

Prop 1 – Vote NO

Plain English Title: Raids Treatment Programs to Subsidize Government Welfare Housing

Politicians’ Ballot Title: Authorizes $6.38 Billion in Bonds to Build Mental Health Treatment Facilities; Provides Housing for the Homeless

California’s homelessness crisis will absolutely get worse if Prop 1 passes! Prop 1 raids and diverts funding from treatment programs that serve homeless people in favor of giving billions in subsidies to rich developers for expensive government-subsidized mega housing projects. The mega government housing projects that would be subsidized under Prop 1 have been criticized by numerous independent government auditors for being wasteful – costing as much as $1 million per unit! That is hardly “affordable housing!”

Prop 1 also eliminates your right to vote to reject government welfare housing projects from being placed in your neighborhood. We need to reject Prop 1 and tell politicians to use our precious funds for more efficient options like treatment and shelter beds for the homeless!

Local Ballot Measures

City of Huntington Beach
  1. Measure A — Vote YES
    Plain English Title: Provide More In-Person Voting Locations, Monitor Ballot Drop-Boxes, and Require Citizenship to Vote
    Politicians’ Ballot Title: City of Huntington Beach, Charter Amendment Measure No. 1
    Measure A is an election integrity measure that will push back on the reduction of in-person polling locations by California's liberal politicians. A YES vote approves this measure.
  2. Measure B — Vote YES
    Plain English Title: Prevents Flags Other than U.S., State and Local Government, Olympics, and Service Flags from Flying on City Property
    Politicians’ Ballot Title: City of Huntington Beach, Charter Amendment Measure No. 2
    Measure B effectively bans identity flags from flying on city property without a unanimous vote of the city council. A YES vote approves this measure.
  3. Measure C — Vote YES
    Plain English Title: Allows Voters to Fill Council Vacancies at Next Regular Election
    Politicians’ Ballot Title: City of Huntington Beach, Charter Amendment Measure No. 3
    Measure C allows voters to fill council vacancies, rather than allow the council to appoint someone to a vacancy — which could equate to a nearly 4-year term under current law. Under Measure C, the council would only be allowed to fill a vacancy until the next regular election in which voters would elect someone to fill the unexpired term. Measure C also modernizes some terminology in the charter, requires a 2-year budget plan, and modernizes meeting scheduling procedures for the council. A YES vote approves this measure.
City of Irvine
  1. Measure D — Vote YES
    Plain English Title: Add Two City Council Positions and Elect City Council by District instead of At-Large
    Politicians’ Ballot Title: City of Irvine, Charter Amendment to Expand City Council and Establish City Council Districts
    Measure D will lead to more accurate voter representation on the council by establishing districts, and it will require greater consensus building on the council by adding more members. A YES vote approves this measure.
City of Westminster
  1. Measure E — Vote NO
    Plain English Title: Increases City Sales Tax by 0.5%, Costing Your Family Hundreds of Dollars a Year
    Politicians’ Ballot Title: City of Westminster, Westminster Safety, Services Stabilization Measure
    Measure E is a massive tax increase that will cost your family an extra $200 or more per year. Politicians say Measure E will fund specific areas such as “safety” and “homeless” — but they use these words only because they polled these terms and they think they will entice you into supporting the measure. Measure E does NOT require politicians to spend the new sales tax on the services claimed. The city attorney even states "Proceeds of the tax ... would be deposited to the city’s general fund and available for any lawful municipal purpose." A NO vote blocks this tax hike.
Orange Unified School District
  1. Orange Unified School District Recall — Vote NO
    Extremist activists, teacher union bosses, and other special interests are trying to oust the elected members of the Orange Unified School District for putting parents and children first by voting against explicit and inappropriate materials in schools, cutting bloated budgets, and protecting parents' rights. A NO vote keeps the current board and keeps them fighting to protect parents and children first — before special interests.
