Capitol Update
Allison Olson, CFRW Legislative Advocate 
April 13, 2018

CFRW June Primary Positions - The June [5th] Primary Election is right around the corner, 55 days away, if you can believe it. So, it is high time we start educating voters on the ballot measures!

The California Federation of Republican Women publish our ballot measure positions every election. These are the official positions of the CFRW, voted on by the CFRW Voting Body. The Voting Body is made up of our CFRW State President, the three State Division Vice-Presidents, and the three Division Presidents. These 7 women study analyses compiled by the CFRW Advocate and the CFRW Ballot Measures Legislative Analyst. After a consensus vote, our official positions are made.

Information, talking points, and voter-guides will be available in each Capitol Update leading to the Primary Election. It is YOUR responsibility as a Californian and a member of the California Federation of Republican Women to educate voters!

Remember when talking to voters about the Ballot Measures- they are written intentionally to persuade the voter for their desired outcome.

Who can manipulate ballot measures to sway the outcome? Governor Brown, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, and Attorney General Xavier Becerra. Those three very powerful Democrats have gate-keeping power for almost all ballot measures. They decide the language, the title, the summary, and the order in which the ballot measures are listed. Every voter should understand the power in shaping elections that the Governor, Secretary of State, and the State Attorney General have.

In the upcoming Capitol Updates, until June 5th, we will highlight each Proposition with information on its history and journey to the ballot, the rationale for our positions, talking points for educating voters, and closer to the election we will provide easy voter-guides to distribute before election day.

For today, we will list the Propositions by number, title, a one-sentence summary, and our position. If you have any questions about a ballot measure or our positions, please email our Advocate at advocate@cfrw.org.

    VOTE NO ON RAISING BRIDGE TOLLS - NO ON RM3. Voting for Regional Measure 3 (RM3) will be voting to CHANGE your COUNTY government (elected) to a  REGIONAL governance (appointed).
    RM3, on the June ballot, is deceptive and supports a bureaucracy out of control.  It contains multiple promises regarding a variety of unconnected improvements that will only make it difficult to hold legislators or regional agencies accountable. This hodgepodge of various promises was obviously created in an attempt to bribe voters in each of the nine ABAG (Association of Bay Area Governments) counties.
    Local control by residents in all of the nine ABAG counties is being sacrificed to REGIONALISM. You have NO POLITICAL POWER in a REGION. It’s time to make the government in Sacramento and their regional ABAG and MTC (Metropolitan Transportation Commission) minions accountable to the people they serve.
    One million dollars of this money will go toward creating an appointed (not elected) oversight group which will only meet once per year and can have no authority over the massive funds generated.


    What We Believe!

    That the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our nation’s strength.

    That government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual’s creative ability can flourish.

    That government activity should be limited to those things that people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well for themselves.

    That the most effective government is government closest to the people.

    That those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self -supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
