L.A. ballot could be crowded in March
The Los Angeles City Council will meet Tuesday to decide whether to put before voters as many as 13 measures on the March 8 ballot, including proposals to shore up library funding, scale back public employee pension costs and create an independent watchdog at the Department of Water and Power.
With so many issues in play, some on the council have begun warning there are simply too many ideas being cooked up for a single election.
"I hope we don't put them all on the ballot, is all I can say," Councilman Richard Alarcon said. "If we want an informed electorate, they have to be able to absorb what we give them."
Wednesday is the council's deadline for placing proposals on the ballot.
