1994 California Election Results
My recommendations for this year's elections and the actual results.
Prop 181 NO
- Ask the state to borrow $1 billion (more than $1.6 billion
counting interest) to build a system that will run at a deficit without
providing for a way to increase revenues?
- Failed (65.2%)
Prop 183 NO
- The people have asked to recall someone. Don't let him sit
around in office for six more months.
- Passed (67.2%)
Prop 184 YES
- Three Strikes You're Out. "Weak" YES vote. The law has many
plusses, but it's not perfect. A NO vote might be the correct way to tell
the Legislature to fix the law.
- Passed (71.9%)
Prop 185 NO
- 4% gasoline tax to pay for buses, light rail, etc. which
already has low ridership as it is. Until they can find a way to make
public transportation work for the public, it doesn't make sense to keep
throwing money at a system that isn't being used.
- Failed (80.6%)
Prop 186 NO
- $75 billion in government funds to provide health insurance.
Single person making $60,000 annually would have to pay $1500 for health
care, PLUS his company would have to pay an additional $5000. For this case,
it seems pretty exhorbitant.
- Failed (73.4%)
Prop 187 NO
- Gov. Wilson has the right ideas about sending a message to
the Federal government, but this statute doesn't seem to be the right
- Passed (59.1%)
Prop 188 NO
- Overrides the Clean Air Act, preempts any and all local
legislation, permits smoking in the workplace (under employer discretion).
- Failed (70.5%)
Prop 189 YES
- No reason not to vote YES, but I'm pissed that the
Legislature thought 189, 190, and 191 were important enough to spend
over $1 million to make a supplemental ballot.
- Passed (79.2%)
Prop 190 NO
- Add new plum appointee positions under the guise of having
more public oversight? A solution may be needed here, this doesn't seem like
the right one.
- Passed (63.7%)
Prop 191 NO
- Weak "NO". This can wait until the next election when the
Legislature has had more time to look at the issue. Should all Justice
court judges automatically be promoted to municipal court judges?
- Passed (60.8%)
