Hi RFK Democrats . . . Next Meeting:

Tuesday, February 19 at Gondola

Proposition 13 - Yeah, THAT Prop 13!

In 1978, conservative anti-taxers led by Howard Jarvis, passed an initiative called Prop 13 that changed the fundamental tax structure of the California.  It moved tax control from local communities to Sacramento and caused massive deficits in the state budget.  But homeowners, commercial property owners, and industrial property owners received large tax breaks that have lasted to this day.  So the law has remained on the books. 

RFK Meeting at Gondola Pizza Restaurant

Ever since it passed, Prop 13 has been considered the third rail of California politics because any politician who suggested repealing the law was usually defeated in the next election. Now, a new initiative has been working its way to the 2020 ballot, supported by a large coalition of organizations, including: League of Women Voters of California, PICO California, California Calls, Advancement Project California, Evolve California, Common Sense Kids Action, Alliance San Diego, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of California (CHIRLA), California Federation of Teachers.

Our Speaker - Sharon Sorensen, the League of Women Voters, North Orange County

Also - Indivisible - We may be able to have a speaker who can tell us about Indivisible,
a nationwide organization of Progressives intent on moving the political ball forward.

NEXT MONTH - MARCH 19: Congresswoman Linda Sanchez
