Ballot Measures Spotlighted at Downtown Napa Forum

Do you feel lost among all the propositions and local measures on the November ballot?

First United Methodist Church in downtown Napa is offering guidance beyond the spiritual plane Sunday morning, when a panel of local speakers will examine all four county measures and three of the statewide propositions.

Organizers say time constraints have forced them to choose only three of the 11 state propositions:

Proposition 30 (Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act): Speakers will be Bruce Ketron, attorney and current board trustee for the Napa Valley College; Leon Brauning, appraiser and the president of the Napa County Taxpayers Association from 2010-2011.

Proposition 34 (SAFE California Act): Jan Geren, retired from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation; Doug Farr, attorney and former Deputy District Attorney (Stanislaus County and Mendocino County)

Proposition 37:  (California Right to Know):  Erica Martenson, educator and Napa coordinator for the statewide effort to label GE(genetically engineered) food;  Ruth and Ronall Waltenspiel, farmers in Sonoma County.

County Measures S, T, U and VKeith Caldwell, Napa County Supervisor from District 5 and chair of the Yes on County Measure T Committee.

The forum runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at First United Methodist, 625 Randolph St. in Napa.
