It's a tradition that keeps on giving...Handel's voter guide where he gives his unsolicited voting advice!

As you read, keep in mind the only rule...this is a guide for Handel and if (as he phrases it) you're dumb enough to use it, he will find you and personally fire you as a KFI listener.

That being said...BEHOLD! Handel's thoughts on the June 5th elections:

The People:

  • Literally nothing is all that interesting about this election EXCEPT the governor's race.
    • That being said it's almost an open and shut deal....it'll be down to John Cox or Gavin Newsom to be the next California governor.
  • How about in a smaller race? Who does Handel endorse for the Orange County DA? 
    • Longtime friend Todd Spitzer! Handel says that friendship aside, Todd is a "true public servant".

Props:

  • Prop 68 --- Undecided, will think about it when at the booth
    • What is it?
      • Authorizes $4 billion in general obligation bonds for: parks, natural resources protection, climate adaptation, water quality and supply, and flood protection. Fiscal Impact: Increased state bond repayment costs averaging $200 million annually over 40 years. Local government savings for natural resources related projects, likely averaging several tens of millions of dollars annually over the next few decades.
  • Prop 69 --- Yes
    •  What is it?
      • Requires that certain revenues generated by a 2017 transportation funding law be used only for transportation purposes and generally prohibits Legislature from diverting funds to other purposes. Fiscal Impact: No direct effect on the amount of state and local revenues or costs but could affect how some monies are spent.

  • Prop 70 --- Sure...he'll vote yes, but it doesn't matter
    • What is it?
      • Beginning in 2024, requires that cap-and-trade revenues accumulate in a reserve fund until the Legislature, by a two-thirds majority, authorizes use of the revenues. Fiscal Impact: Beginning in 2024, potential temporary increase in state sales tax revenue, ranging from none to a few hundred million dollars annually, and possible changes in how revenue from sale of greenhouse gas emission permits is spent.
  • Prop 71 --- Yes
    • What is it?
      • Provides that ballot measures approved by a majority of voters shall take effect five days after the Secretary of State certifies the results of the election. Fiscal Impact: Likely little or no effect on state and local finances.
  • Prop 72 --- BIG Yes
    • What is it?
      • Permits Legislature to allow construction of rain-capture systems, completed on or after January 1, 2019, without requiring property-tax reassessment. Fiscal Impact: Probably minor reduction in annual property tax revenues to local governments.
