Election time is upon us! Ballots will start arriving after October 5th.
This Sunday September 27th at our General Meeting we’ll be talking through the Propositions and Ballot Measures.
To help us understand the State Propositions and Local Ballot Measures we are pleased to welcome back guest speakers (and clubmembers) Anne Hoiberg and Cody Petterson, who will explain the pros and cons and field questions from members.
We’ll also have discussion around some of the more controversial issues such as Measure E and Proposition 22.
Anne Hoiberg worked for 25 years as a research psychologist at the Naval Health Research Center in Point Loma. In 1980 she organized a week-long “Women and the World of Work” symposium for scientists in Lisbon, Portugal for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and pledged to do something locally and globally to advance women. She’s held fast to the pledge ever since. She is currently serving as President of the Women’s Museum of California, and is a past president of the League of Women Voters, United Nations Association of San Diego, and National Women’s Political Caucus.
Cody Petterson is an anthropologist and environmental activist in San Diego, California, where he is President of the Democrats for Environmental Action. He’s a member of the San Diego County Party Central Committee representing the 78th Assembly District. He’s also a Trustee of the La Jolla Town Council, serves on the boards of the San Diego River Conservancy and the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego, and is an Executive Committee Member of the Sierra Club of San Diego.
