In Tuesday's election it is not enough just to vote for Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer and Gavin Newsom.
It's important to reject the TV smears paid for by the tobacco companies, the oil companies, big mortgage banks and right wing billionaires by electing:
-- Kamala Harris as Attorney General. She will fight crime, polluters and mortgage fraud.
-- Dave Jones for Insurance Commissioner, he'll protect consumers from increases in insurance rates.
-- And Tom Torlakson as Superintendant of Public Instruction. He is supported by parents, educators and school superintendents.
Additionally you must vote on the important ballot propositions:
-- Prop 20: NO - Just another power grab by a Republican billionaire.
-- Prop 21: YES - Protects state parks.
-- Prop 22: NO - Would cut schools and public safety by billions of dollars.
-- Prop 23: NO - Protect green jobs and say no to Texas oil companies.
-- Prop 24: YES - Increase funding for schools by ending corporate tax handouts.
-- Prop 25: YES - Protects 2/3 vote on taxes and punishes legislators for late budgets.
-- Prop 26: NO - Vote no, don't let polluters off the hook.
-- Prop 27: YES - Eliminates state bureaucracy and repeals Schwarzenegger's Republican reapportionment scheme.
