A full-house crowd attended the RCPC- Oakland League of Women Voters joint Town Hall on October 4th at the Rockridge Library.   Kathleen Cha, the Oakland League's communications director and a veteran presenter, went through the state and local ballot measures that will be on the ballot November 6th.  She briefly summarized what each measure was about, told what groups were supporting and opposing each measure, and gave the major pros and cons for eah measure.

The presentation was video-recorded, and the videos have been posted on RCPC's YouTube channel.  There are four sections to the presentation, and they can be viewed here.

The League handed out (and you can now download) their informational pamphlets on State and Oakland measures.  The League also distributed their ballot propositions "scorecard" where you can mark down your preferences for each measure.  On the back, the scorecard provided additional sources for ballot information.  Both sides are attached to this article for download.
