  1. Lauren Steiner says

    I disagree with my colleagues in PDA on their no recommendations for Props 20 and 27. I think they are against it because they think it is a power grab by the GOP since there would be equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans on the citizen redistricting committees. Therefore, since California is a Democratic state, Dems would lose seats. I think that does not necessarily bear out. And right now with politicians gerrymandering their own district boundaries, moderate non-incumbents have no chance of getting elected and the system is gridlocked. Personally I am going to vote yes on both. But an argument can be made to vote yes on 27 to give the commissions which are forming a chance to work on the state level before changing the system for the federal offices.

      Lauren — why should I trust any commission to make these decisions any more than a committee of the legislature? We can’t even hold commissions accountable and commissions and commissioners cost lots of money and we are already paying the legislators. And in the long run this will completely screw any thrid party in California.
