Dear editor, The Napa County Republican Central Committee at its regular April meeting reviewed and discussed the state propositions on the June 8 ballot and has approved the following recommendations:
Proposition 13: This measure is consistent with our goals of lower taxes and we strongly support a yes vote.
Proposition 14: This measure would effectively eliminate third party participation in elections. That is why we join with them in recommending a no vote.
Proposition 15: The Committee does not believe that increasing taxes to allow the government to promote political campaigns is good for the country or good for democracy. We urge a no vote.
Proposition 16: PG&E’s rates are already the highest in the state. The majority of the Committee voted to oppose this measure on grounds that the primary beneficiary would be PG&E. We urge a no vote.
Proposition 17: This proposition seems to be a solution in search of a problem. The measure’s sponsor is the only real beneficiary and we urge a no vote.
In addition, the Committee voted unanimously to support Doris Gentry for Representative of California Assembly District 7.
Kevin Hangman / Vice Chair, Napa County Republican Central Committee, Napa
