The location of the event stated here is incorrect. The public information meeting on the ballot propositions is being held in the Community Room at Monrovia Library, 321 S. Myrtle Ave. The event begins at 6:30pm, seating space is limited, so you may want to arrive a little early. Best regards, Monrovia Chamber of Commerce

I just wrote about No on 32 in another thread, but for those who are thinking of yes, don't waste California taxpayers. This is a stare decisis matter (already adjudicated/ruled). This bill wants to exclude unions and companies from contributing to elections but its sponsors like big oil exempted themselves and a bunch of their cronies. But the Supremes already decided that campaign contributions are a form of First Amendment expression, ergo the corporate personhood. If corporations are people, then unions are people, and the First Amendment still stands. Largely, if this is passed, it will be fought in the courts, most probably all the way to SCOTUS, very costly to its citizens, and the matter will not prevail in court. One can argue States' Rights, but States' Rights can never abridge the Constitution. This is largely a giant exercise in stupidity, and if you're concerned about your tax dollars being wasted, the obvious thing to do is to vote this turkey down. It abridges the First Amendment for many while leaving it only for its sponsors. So unConstitutional, it should NEVER have made the ballot. Period.
