Propositions and Ballot Measures
November 3rd, 2018
The Coronado Democratic Club will hold its General Membership Meeting on Saturday, November 3 in the Winn Room at the Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue. Social time with coffee and healthy snacks begins at 10:30 am, followed by the business meeting at 11:00 am.
Are you confused by some of the measures on the ballot? Why does the advertising seem to be unrelated to the issues addressed by the propositions? Whose money is behind the campaigns for and against them? We have, within our club membership, experts in many of the areas addressed by the measures. They will try to clarify for the rest us what the intentions of the proponents and opponents of each State and County proposition actually are.
We’ll hold our meeting in a round-table format. To keep it orderly, speaking request forms (probably just a blank piece of paper) will be distributed prior to the business portion of the meeting. As each proposition comes up for discussion, the chair will ask for persons who are for and against to speak, in alternating order, until the time allotted for each issue has expired.
Some of the many reasons we have a Democratic Club is to educate our members and the community at large, and provide them with an additional channel to participate in our democracy. We also exist to help elect Democrats to public office. In that regard, after our meeting, those members who desire to do so are asked to devote a few hours that afternoon to participating in final get-out-the-vote drives on behalf of some of our Democratic candidates for Congress whose races are too close for comfort. We look forward to the participation of as many members as possible.
