November ballot measures analyzed, explained at next meeting

By Judy McCarty

Walking into your ballot booth holding two huge sample ballots could be intimidating if you haven’t had the benefit of listening to an analysis of the measures by Richard Rider, founder and chairman of San Diego Tax Fighters.

Besides the two opposing Chargers initiatives are an avalanche of other critically important local and statewide issues that need to be considered carefully and voted on. Rider has been a tax fighter all his life and can help us understand the truth and consequences of the approximately 33 propositions that will be on the general election ballot in November.

In addition, Tony Krvaric, Chairman of the San Diego Republican Party, will discuss differing political philosophies and bring us up to date on party election activities. Shirley Kaltenborn will share a brief history of Federated women in San Diego.

All this will happen Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Brigantine Restaurant in La Mesa at the Fuerte exit off Interstate 8. Check-in time for the 11 a.m. meeting is 10:30 am. A full-course luncheon will be served at noon with the speakers to follow at 12:30 pm. Cost is $20. Due to space limitations, reservations are required. Please RSVP to (RSVP in the subject line) or call 619-291-2791.

Participation in local grassroots political activity is fun. Registering voters at events like Oktoberfest or working at the Republican headquarters builds friendships and connects you to your community. Contact if you’re interested in joining us.

Membership in Navajo Canyon RWF is open to any woman who is a registered Republican. For more information on all our activities, visit our newly-designed website, and check us out on Facebook.
