The Culver City Chamber of Commerce has released its list of endorsements for the various ballot propositions and measures for the Nov. 6 election.
The Chamber chose not to take a position on any propositions it did not deem business issues and in some instances simply didn’t take a stand on certain propositions, without any explanation as to why.
Chamber President Steve Rose sent out the following letter to Chamber members regarding his stand:
…The state's proposition system is broken; our legislature is allowing through their inaction too many truly special interest propositions on the ballot. We have tax increases, product labeling requirements, death penalty changes plus many other constitutional questions. In my opinion the state legislature is not doing their job.
The General Election is our time to make our choices known to our elected representative and even elect our representatives, even though in the Culver City area there seems to be a lack of choices on the ballot. With the Open Primary System now in effect in California, we should see some changes in the coming elections.
One last time VOTE on Tuesday or remember to vote by mail.
That's what I think....
