Voters who want to be in the know about the eleven propositions on the November ballot can expect lively discussion and even debate at a free public forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters Pasadena Area. Titled “Are You in the Know?” it will be held Oct. 6, 9:30 to noon, at the Women’s City Club, 160 N. Oakland Ave., Pasadena.
A team of League members who have studied the measures in depth can help people separate fact from fiction regarding the hotly debated, competing tax measures of Gov. Jerry Brown and education advocate Molly Munger. Speakers also will analyze and present background information and prospective effects on each of the other 10 measures, including a business tax.
Three other propositions address criminal justice issues: ending the death penalty, tougher penalties for human sex trafficking and modifying the three-strikes law. Another three affect the legislature: a two-year cycle for the state budget, limits in campaign donations, and a challenge to the recently redrawn political boundaries for state senate district. Two address consumer issues: genetically altered food and auto insurance.
Lunch will follow the program and costs $20, including tax, tip and parking. Information and reservations are available by calling 626-798-0965, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Walk-ins for the program are invited with not cost for admission.
