“This is a political sign and may be posted on door or window under authority of California code section 1940.4 (a) and (b). 1940.4.

Los Angeles- Candidates for Mayor include:  Paul E. Amori, Y.J. Draiman, Eric Garcetti, Diane “Pinky” Harman, David Hernandez Frantz Pierre, activist, Eric Preven, writer, Mitchell Schwartz,  David Saltzburg, Yuval Kremer, Dennis Richter. Also on the ballot:

Proposition M and N

I think “M” stands for “marijuana”.  Voters will have to choose between two ways to regulate cannabis, either measure M or measure N. Sound confusing?

Proposition P and S

“P” is a proposed charter amendment and “S” is a citizen initiative. It is possible that both measures could be approved by voters, then in that case one might cancel out the one with the least votes. Sound confusing?

Here are some tidbits from the Voter Information Pamphlet.

Try to read the ballot measures in their entirety because all will not be what it appears to be:

[Argument in Favor of Measure S]

Billionaire developers are ruining Los Angeles. Record show that billionaire developers shower city hold leaders with millions of dollars. Then in back room meetings are leaders workout plans with these billionaires. In the end in the in bayonet developers get to skip around our protective zoning rules at terrible cost to you and your family.

… The LA Times has uncovered major corruption now being investigated by  our LA district attorney.*

Yes on S  forces City Hall to hold key community planning hearings in the communities at night, not downtown during the day when lobbyists usually dominate.  Vote yes on S encourages affordable housing.

[Measure S Analysis by City Hall]

“This measure will cost the city millions of dollars in lost revenue from permits and licenses and other fees charged to impacted projects. Additionally services and community benefits funded through associated mitigation impact fees and other exactions related to development will decrease by millions of dollars to offset this revenue loss the city may have to reduce existing staffing levels. The decrease and building planning and public Works activity  in the city doing in immediately after the building moratorium Will determine the extent of the revenue loss and staff reductions. The number of projects that will be subject to the moratorium after the effective date of this measure and their impact on the local economy is unknown. ” Miquel A. Santana, City Administrative Officer.

Vote Yes on S

[Editor: I encourage you to read the Voter Pamphlet and DO NOT vote GARCETTI. * For some reason the office of the LA County District Attorney refuses to investigate Hi Point Apts LLC and Abady Holdings LTD.]

Update February 17, 2017
