Forum to highlight propositions on ballot

Do you feel confused or frustrated when trying to vote on propositions because you don’t understand the explanations shown in the ballot?

Lake Wildwood is hosting an educational forum that will bring together some of the region’s most informed leaders from media and academia, who, along with six proposition “experts,” will be discussing California’s three most compelling propositions on the Nov. 2 ballot: Proposition 19, Legalize and Tax Marijuana; Proposition 23, California Jobs Initiative-Defer AB 32, Global Warming Solutions Act; and Proposition 25, On Time Budget Act of 2010-Change State Budget Approval To Simple Majority of Legislature.

The forum will be from 7 to 9 p.m. today in the Community Center Oak Room, Lake Wildwood Community Center.

The panel will assess the critical issues of each proposition, pros and cons, including realities, implications, financial impacts and concerns. Question and answer periods are planned. A “meet and greet” will follow the session.

The panel includes Jeff Ackerman, editor and publisher, of The Union; Tom Fitzsimmons, general manager, KNCO Radio; Mike Dobbins, owner and publisher, TWI; and Paul Emery, news director, KVMR FM radio. The moderator will be Dr. Winsome Jackson, political science professor and department chair, Sierra College.

Two proposition “experts” will represent each proposition, one supporting the proposition, the other opposing the proposition.

Tickets are available for $7 and checks should be made out to LWWASSN. For information, including admission to the gated community, call Lou Cappello at 432-1884.
