2014 Ballot Issues and Judge Retention

At the October 16th Central Committee Meeting the 2014 Ballot Issues as well as Judge Retention Questions were discussed to determine if any recommendations should come from the Central Committee on the Ballot Questions and Judge Retention.  Following are results of that discussion as well as the recommendations:
  • Judge Retention - the Central Committee did not have any compelling information about any of the 6 judges on the ballot that would warrant a recommendation either way.  The recommendation on each of the judges is personal choice of the voter.
  • Amendment 67 (Definition of Person and Child) and Amendment 68 (Horse Racetrack Casino Gambling) - the Central Committee voted unanimously to VOTE NO on both of these ballot issues.  Each of these Ballot questions was tested against OUR PRINCIPLES and protection of the Constitution is a key element of those principles.  Since neither issue was so overly important to amend the Constitution it was recommended to vote no.  Issues about each was brought up at the meeting; however, the over-riding fact is that these were petition generated Amendments to the Constitution and the Central Committee could not recommend changing it.
  • Proposition 104 (School Board Meeting Requirements) and Proposition 105 (Labeling Genetically Modified Foods) - the Central Committee voted unanimously to VOTE NO on both of these ballot issues.  Each of these Propositions was also tested against OUR PRINCIPLES and it was determined that neither passed the test.  The general feeling was that we elect members of the State Legislative to create or modify our State Statutes and these issues were brought to the ballot by petition of a group of people and not our Elected Representatives or Senators.  Neither issue was so overpowering that Statutes should be changed.  The Central Committee felt that our existing Statutes were sufficient for openness in School Board meetings and that there are particular reasons for Executive Sessions provided that decisions are made in the Public purview.  The Central Committee felt that labeling requirements for Proposition 105 would severely raise the price of food as well as State Governmental costs for monitoring and the benefits would definitely not warrant these costs or price increases.
  • RE-1J Question 3A (Increase Taxes on a Referred Measure) - the Central Committee voted unanimously to leave this question to the personal choice of the voter and did not make a recommendation for or against.
