California voters decided the fate of twelve ballot measures during the 2020 General Election this year. In August, our host, Paul A. Smith, spoke with Jeremy B. White of Politico in a two-part series during which we looked at each ballot measure, what each proclaimed to do, and where the money was coming from. There was special emphasis on what each measure would mean for rural counties, and a look at the position taken on each measure by the Board of Directors of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC).
In this episode, Jeremey B. White of Politico returns for an examination of how each measure faired when put before the voters. In a conversation with our host, Paul A. Smith, Jeremy shares his insights about what may have contributed to the wins and losses, what we can ascertain about the California electorate, and which measures we can expect to see before the voters again in the future.
If you missed the original series, you can catch up now to hear how the conversation began.
