EGP Ballot Recommendations – June 7 Primary


Yes on State Measure 50
The public is dismayed by the fact that state legislators charged with corruption or crimes can continue to receive their state pay even if they have been suspended from duty by their fellow legislators.

Leaders in the State Senate and Assembly say they are unable to do anything about this situation because the California Constitution doesn’t grant them the authority to suspend entitlements.

State Proposition 50 would amend the Constitution to give the legislature power to suspend members and their salary and other benefits.
It prohibits suspended members from using the power of their office or any legislative resources. Suspensions may end on a specified date or by a vote of the members of house.

Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacy has no opposition for re-election, therefore EGP makes no endorsement for this office.

Previous endorsement: Loretta Sanchez for U.S. Senate.
EGP will continue our endorsements for the June 7 Primary Election in next week’s issue.
