What were the big issues in your area when voteing?

  • Locally, pension reform for law enforcement. TWO measures, one fronted by the deputies which would have left all decisions on changes to their plans up to the voters. Competing version from the county supervisors which would have given the supes power to DECREASE pensions, but requires voter approval for INCREASES. *Both* measures passed but the supes' measure got more votes and becomes law... unless there's litigation.
