This measure would increase the pay for council members from $500 to $1,500 a month. We find this is reasonable compensation for the time spent, although we recommend that members give up their free passes to Shoreline Amphitheatre.
Yes on Measure H
The present $597 annual parcel tax for the Los Alto Elementary School District would be renewed under this measure. The district serves 950 Mountain View students, who will benefit if the tax is renewed.
Yes on Measure A
Major development on hillsides, ranchlands, watersheds and agricultural lands would be restricted by this measure and would not harm small farmers. It makes sense, as there is more and more pressure to develop these often vulnerable areas.
Sinunu for District Attorney
With the retirement of George Kennedy, county voters will elect a new DA for the first time in years. Our choice is Karyn Sinunu, who has served as Asst. DA for more than 10 years. She has worked on victims' rights, and is an experienced administrator.
Feinstein for U.S. Senate
Eshoo for U.S. Congress
Lieber for State Assembly
Yes on Proposition 1A
Proceeds from gas, diesel taxes should be devoted to transportation.
No on Propositions 1B-1E
These propositions would put the state in debt more than $73 billion, at a cost of nearly $2.5 billion a year for 30 years. This is not a way for the state to get out of debt.
Yes on Proposition 83
This will further restrict sex offenders and is supported by law enforcement officials.
No on Proposition 84
This $5.3 billion measure would improve water quality and parks, but would saddle the state with multi-million dollar bond payments for 30 years. We can't afford it.
No on Proposition 85
Doctors oppose this measure to force minors to notify parents 48 hours before an abortion.
Yes on Proposition 86
Approximately $2 billion in annual proceeds from additional cigarette tax would improve emergency services and pay for tobacco prevention programs.
Yes on Proposition 87
This hotly-contested proposition would assess a new tax on oil producers to fund alternative energy.
No on Proposition 88
This $50 annual parcel tax would exempt seniors and some others, but we believe education taxes should be assessed at the local level.
Yes on Proposition 89
Limits on campaign contributions make sense, and similar measures are working in other states.
No on Proposition 90
Along with prohibiting governments from taking private property by eminent domain, this measure would severely restrict local and state governments from protecting the environment and open space by allowing property owners to sue for any perceived devaluation of property. Municipal officials predict a huge increase in litigation expense if Prop. 90 is passed.
