Odd or Even Years for PA Elections? Measure S
Original post made by Paul Losch, a resident of Palo Alto, on Oct 7, 2010
As best as I can tell, the people favoring Prop S, which would move the local issues and candidates voting to be part of the larger ballot such as what we are about to deal with, are advocating it as a cost savings measure.
As best as I can tell, those opposing Prop S are providing the point of view that voters will be better focused and able to get more information is they are not also dealing with all the stuff that we get in even numbered years, from General Election information.
I lean with the opponents.
I get accused at times as being a Palo Alto insider. I may be guilty as charged, but I lived here for many years before I got to know those people who do paid and sworn volunteer work on behalf of Palo Alto.
The more I learn, the more I take the point of view that too many of us were like me, not really knowing the issues Palo Alto faces. We live in a wonderful community, and also in an important globally significant City.
It may cost CPA a little more money, and I think it is worth it. NO on S
