For the news and views you might have missed
I have researched both programs as seen in the 10 posts I have written on the programs.
My regret is that Burgess and others involved with 1B couldn’t come to the table with the proponents of 1A and work out a program that would work universally. Because of that, we have two proposals and unfortunately many people are confused as to how to vote.
I was confused also at first and it took me several weeks to sift through the information and talk with many people to come to my own conclusion.
First, let’s look at the ballot. This is how it will be worded:
1. Should either or neither of these measures be enacted into law?
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
2. Regardless of how you voted above, if one of these measures is enacted, which one should it be?
[ ] Proposition 1A
[ ] Proposition 1B
You can see that whether you vote Yes or No on the first question, you are to provide your opinion on which program you want.
This is where it gets tricky because we are under the impression that no matter what, one will be selected, whether voters think we should have a citywide preschool program or not. (Whacky? Absolutely. Can this be challenged? I believe it can.)
Because of the way the questions are worded, I recommend voting for 1A and to follow are my reasons in brief.
Why Yes 1A
Why No on 1B
