Compiled Endorsements for Candidates and Ballot Measures

The GPOC doesn’t do much in the way of official endorsement of candidates and ballot measures compared to the number of things you will see on your ballot.  To fill the need for advice about all these down-ballot items, we often put out an appeal for individuals known to us to send their personal endorsements.  Only four people have contributed any personal endorsements since we did so this time around.  There’s still time to send more.  Add it as a comment, or send it to our email address on the “Contact Us” page.

To fill the gaps in what we have below, you might want to consult the Orange Juice Blog:
http://www.orangejuiceblog.com/2016/10/finally-oj-blogs-comprehensive-2016-general-election-endorsements-a-work-in-progress/ We often agree with them, but not always.

GPCA = Official postion of the Green Party of California
GPOC = Official position of the Green Party of Orange County
G = known local registered Green
g = known local Green-friendly

PARTISAN OFFICES

Jill Stein for President, obviously. For the rest, make up your own mind. Prop 14 has effectively excluded “third” parties from November elections in all other offices.
