I admit…it was really hard not to title this post with a quip from the Terminator, but it's like shooting fish in a barrel, don't you think?
As expected, all five propositions that would have critically affected the California budget, failed. So, we enter the next fiscal year, beginning July 1st, in big trouble.
At this point, I'm hoping the result doesn't affect AB 5 (it seems we have bipartisan buy-in on it), but I can also wish for pie in the sky; a veto-proof vote.
P.S. I'm sure some of you are wondering, and the answer is, yes, I voted in the election – by absentee ballot. I take my civic duty very seriously. And no, I'm not going to tell you how I voted.
It's no small feat. Californians have been asked to go to the polls twelve times in the past seven years!
Perhaps this is why less than 20% of eligible voters exercised their right to do so…
