Special Election Is On!
Looks like the Governor went ahead and scheduled a special election for November 8. His four "reform" initiatives will be on the ballot along with four others, according to this news brief from the San Francisco Chronicle.
I've said before that while I'm somewhat in agreement with the Governor's proposed reforms, I really don't see a need for a special election, as the Governor's reforms really won't accomplish much in the short or long term. About the only positive thing that will come out of this, if Arnold's initiatives win, is it will be a moral defeat for the government employee unions and those trying to maintain the status quo in the state legislature.
As far as an in depth look at the initiatives that will be on the ballot and how to vote on them, rest assured, I'll be putting up yet another Fred's Election Recommendation web page for the November 8 election. The beauty of my Elections Recommendation Pages is that I do all the thinking on the issues for you so you don't have to. I'll announce the page and add a link here when it's ready. It will take some time to gather the necessary info so stay tuned.
