PROPOSITIONS For detail and rationale go here and open the Ballot Guide and scroll down to last items on the document. Source: CEBV VOTE NO ON THE FOLLOWING: Prop 128 - Voter Protection Act / Court determinations NO This legislature wants us to let them monkey with voter-approved laws on the grounds that we should trust them and this state Supreme Court to respect our wishes? The same legislature and court we’ve spent election cycle after election cycle fighting? Yeah, sure. Don’t be fooled into voting your own rights away. Prop 129 - Initiatives, single subject title. NO This legislature wants us to let them restrict our rights to direct democracy? The same legislature we have to go around in order to get anything decent through? Don’t be fooled into voting your own rights away Prop 130 - constitutional property tax exemptions NO This legislature has done its best to run our government into the ground. There’s no good reason to give them new powers to start chipping away at state tax law. Prop 131 - Lieutenant Governor; joint ticket NO Spends taxpayer money on something voters don’t want. Enables cronyism and corruption. We’re doing just fine without a lieutenant governor; there’s no reason to change our current setup. Prop 132 - Initiatives; supermajority vote; requirement NO Arizona’s founders created the direct democracy process for a reason. Now a handful of crooked lawmakers wants us to limit our own rights? Do they think we were born yesterday? Prop 309 - Voter identification; affidavit; procedure NO Voting is the most basic right in our democracy. It should be free, fair, and easy. Bad ideas like this one only create unnecessary hurdles that keep people from the polls.
VOTE YES ON THE FOLLOWING: Prop 209 (Predatory debt collection protection act) YES It makes no sense to bankrupt someone to try to force them to pay their debt back. Prop 209 will allow people to retain enough assets to get back on their feet. Prop 211 (Voters' Right to Know Act / Stop Dark Money): YES A no-brainer. We should have the right to know who funds political campaigns in Arizona Prop 308 (tuition; postsecondary education): YES Strip away the nativist, white supremacist rhetoric and it’s easy to see this is a win for everyone. Prop 310 (fire districts; funding; TPT increment): YES Just one-tenth of a penny will ensure our fire district firefighters and paramedics have the staffing, equipment, and training necessary to protect public safety statewide. That one-tenth of a penny could end up saving your life someday.
