Ralph Nader to Speak against Proposition 14 on Ron Owen’s KGO Show at 9:30 a.m. on Monday
Ralph Nader will speak today against Proposition 14, the Top Two Primaries Act that Gov. Schwarzenegger, Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado, and the California Chamber of Commerce are pushing onto Californians. Nader is scheduled to speak on Ron Owen’s KGO show at 9:30 a.m. PDT on Monday.
Christina Tobin, chair of StopTopTwo.Org, will be interviewed today on KPFK 90.7 FM by Antonio Gonzalez, the host of Strategy Session at 4:30 p.m. PDT. Tobin will also speak against Proposition 14.
Nader and Tobin will address the harm Proposition 14 will cause California voters and taxpayers. The guests will discuss true electoral reform alternatives that will empower voters such as Proportional Representation. Top Two limits choices, is the by-product of a backroom budget deal, and is unproven.
More leaders nationwide are coming out against Proposition 14, most recently former U.S. Congressman and Presidential candidate John Anderson of Illinois and former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley of Minnesota.
“I urge the voters of California to vote against Proposition 14 in the upcoming primary election,” stated Dean Barkley, a founder and chair of the Minnesota Reform Party (the predecessor of the Independence Party of Minnesota) and chair of Jesse Ventura’s successful 1998 gubernatorial campaign. This proposition will silence the much needed voices of independent and third party candidates in General Elections. These voices are needed more than ever in light of our failing two-party system.”
