The Guardian’s statewide special election endorsements

    San Diego Mayor- Donna Frye

    No on Proposition 73- Abortion notification

    Why we oppose it:

    The measure includes too many “poison pills” — even for those who favor parental notices.

    No on Proposition 74- Teacher tenure

    Why we oppose it:

    Bad teachers ought to get the boot, but not through the measure’s clumsy language, which makes the profession considerably less attractive.

    No on Proposition 75- Union dues

    Why we oppose it:

    The initiative is too narrow in scope to disable union’s sway over legislation.

    No on Proposition 76- California’s budget

    Why we oppose it:

    Under the initiative, state government would lose its key checks and balances.

    No on Proposition 77- Redistricting

    Why we oppose it:

    Though attractive in theory, the measure is rushed and leaves too many questions unanswered.

    No on Proposition 78- Prescription drugs

    Why we oppose it:

    The lack of an enforcement mechanism makes this proposition a dud.

    No on Proposition 79- Prescription drugs

    Why we oppose it:

    Problems of vague language and unlikely federal approval overwhelm this proposition’s promise.

    No on Proposition 80- Utility reregulation

    Why we oppose it:

    The measure is too complicated to work and is likely to be struck down, since it appears to be unconstitutional.

    Vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8

    from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
