It’s too early to predict if Californians will elect more supporters of economic freedom and fiscal responsibility to Congress, statewide office, the state legislature, and local offices in 2014. It’s also too early to know if Californians are getting sick of accumulating yet more public debt through state and local ballot measures.
In the meantime, I’m trying to promote grassroots activities that might encourage Californians to do the following:
1. Consider electing government officials with a different philosophy of government than the tax-and-spend model prevalent in much of the state.
2. Better understand and scrutinize bond measures before approving educational districts to borrow money for construction (and other expenses authorized by Proposition 39, such as iPads).
