State ballot measures debated, explained

Submitted by on 1, April 13, 2009 – 6:45 amNo Comment

On May 19, California voters will be asked to decide on five budget-fixing ballot measures. Luckily for us, local folks have set up two different forums to lay out all the issues for us.

On Tuesday, April 14, the League of Women Voters of Alameda will present the “pros and cons” of each ballot measure. The event begins at 7 p.m. at the Main Library, 1550 Oak Street.

The city’s former budget director, Juelle Ann Boyer, will be on hand to lend her expertise. The event is co-sponsored by the American Association of University Women and Isle City Business & Professional Women. And if you can’t make the event but want to find out what was said, a video will be posted on YouTube.

Then on Wednesday, April 15, the City of Alameda Democratic Club will hash out the ballot issues at its regular monthly meeting, which is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Alameda Hospital, 2070 Clinton Avenue.

Both events are free and open to the public.

If you’re looking for the official 411 on the ballot measures, it’s here. And if you’re interested in voting by mail but haven’t yet applied, you can apply online at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters website through May 12.
