November 2013 Endorsements

Friday, September 20, 2013 – Club members voted yesterday to endorse Propositions A and D, and Katy Tang, Carmen Chu and Dennis Herrera for local offices.

Propositions B and C are No Endorsement.

Local Offices

Katy Tang for Supervisor, District 4.
Carmen Chu for Assessor-Recorder.
Dennis Herrera for City Attorney.

Due to a typographical error, the Treasurer race was omitted from the club ballot. José Cisneros is running unopposed in this race. The club has no position on this office because of the error.

Measures


Yes on A, Retiree Health Care Trust Fund.
No endorsement on B, 8 Washington – Initiative.
No endorsement on C, 8 Washington – Referendum.
Yes on D, Prescription Drug Purchasing.

“No endorsement” means that neither Yes nor No reached the 60% threshold required to endorse. The club’s position is to not support either side on Propositions B and C.

Thank you!

The club extends a warm thank-you to our presenters from the Proposition B and C campaigns and to the membership for its careful consideration and its votes.
