Support California Now!

The following graph may help readers in & out of California? Send to your California Contacts. Write your OWN letter to Editor in one or several of these news sources? Or use as a guideline for other states?

For an important article on California and the Death Penalty GO here
( Even for those who are on the fence, this article shows that voting to repeal the death penalty could save the state of California as any other state a HEAP of money.)

This just came in from Consumer WatchDog dot org via email...may not be on main website? Maybe you could send a letter to editor in these newspapers, call, or vote where appropriate?

Election Day is now just 2 days away. As a public service, we are sending you the positions of the major newspaper editorial boards on all the California ballot measures. Consumer Watchdog does not endorse these editorial positions. We are simply offering them to you, along with links to the original editorials, so that you can do your own research and make your own decisions.

Some of our supporters have asked if Consumer Watchdog has taken positions on any measures...
