People Talk: What is the most important issue in this election or what should be on the ballot?

By From page A2 | June 06, 2012


Josh Glenn, El Dorado Hills: "I haven't really been paying attention to the local stuff. I wish there was more (on the ballot) about getting our state out of the tax deficit it's in."

Cory Call, Cameron Park: "I'm not following anything … but I wish they would get this road construction done. I commute to Sacramento."

Erick Nordquist, Cameron Park: "The state has not paid the schools what is due them. People think (schools) are mis-spending, but we don't have money in the first place to spend. In the May budget revision, there's still deficit spending on education."

Susan Covington, Placerville: "Prop. 29 is very emotional. I like the idea of money going to cancer research. The discouragement of people from smoking is good. (In this issue) the good outweighs the negative."

Carolyn Brooks, El Dorado Hills: "Funding for the library has been hit by all the budget crushing. (There should be) a tax for the library on the ballot so everyone will pay an equal fair amount. If everyone pays that amount, we get more money for more services."

    I think the most important thing on the ballot is to retain Judge Warren "Curt" Stracener for El Dorado Co. Superior Court! Go Stracener!
