Yes, I am in support

On behalf of the over 270,000 residents of South LA, Community Health Councils Supports/Opposes the following this Nov. 3rd:


PROPOSITION 15

Tax on Commercial and Industrial Properties for Education and Local Government Funding Initiative

Increases funding sources for public schools, community colleges, local government services by changing tax assessment of the commercial and industrial property. Taxes commercial properties based on the current market value versus the original purchase price worth more than $3 million to provide new funding to local governments and public schools. The increased property tax is projected to generate between $6.5 to $11.5 billion in new funding annually. The new tax funds could address affordable housing, homelessness, and support underfunded schools and would be phased in starting in 2022. 


PROPOSITION 16

Repeal Proposition 209 Affirmative Action Amendment

Allows diversity as a factor in public employment, education, and contracting decisions by changing a legislative constitutional amendment. The passage of Prop 209 in 1996 eliminated local and state policies and programs designed to increase opportunities and representation for people who faced inequities.


PROPOSITION 17

Voting Rights Restoration for Persons on Parole Amendment

Would amend state constitution to allow people on state parole to be able to register to vote, to vote, and to run for elected offices.


PROPOSITION 18

Would amend state constitution to permit 17-year-olds to vote in the primary and special elections if they turn 18 by the next general election and are otherwise eligible to vote.


PROPOSITION 21

Local Rent Control Initiative

Would expand local government authority to enact rent control on residential property.


MEASURE J

Charter amendment to allocate money from the general fund to alternatives to incarceration

Amends the county’s charter to permanent transfer of no less than 10% from the general fund annually to address the impact of racial injustice through community investment and identifying alternatives to incarceration.

Would reclassify certain misdemeanors as felonies, restrict parole for a broader list of offenses, and require DNA sample collection from inmates.
