The Santa Barbara Independent Endorses Prop 11

The Santa Barbara Independent has recently released their 2008 political endorsements for the November election. Among its endorsements was Proposition 11, which they believe is a step in the right direction towards improving California politics.

Prop. 11: YES. Redistricting: No single thing can fix what ails Sacramento, but Prop. 11 will go a long way toward helping. This measure will remove the power to redraw the political district maps for the Assembly, the Senate, and the Boards of Equalization—as part of the redistricting that takes place every 10 years—and give it to a special 14-member commission of citizen appointees made up of five Democrats, five Republicans, and four others.
