Election 2016 Ballot Positions

The November election is right around the corner. Along with the Presidential, Senate, Congressional, State Senate, Assembly, Mayor and Council races, we also have 17 Statewide Ballot Propositions, 3 County/Regional Measures and 12 local Berkeley Measures. I don't know abut you, but this is a lot to process. 

These measures will decide on new revenue for our schools, parks, roads, and affordable housing, change laws regarding Marijuana and the Death Penalty, and ensure our transportation systems have the resources they need to ensure they can work for many more decades to come. 

Here is a quick summary of some of the items I am either supporting or opposing this upcoming election cycle:
