I write almost exclusively about state and local politics, along with a spattering of other subjects.
I have rarely opined on national politics. That’s not going to change other than to say the race for control of the US Senate will not produce a clear winner.
Most experts expect a margin of plus or minus one or two for either party.
Is that enough to formulate significant legislation?
Absolutely not, especially when you can count on a couple of swing votes.
On election night, I will be far more interested in the outcome of certain races, particularly underdog Ashley Swearengin’s bid for State Controller and the heated battle between Sheila Kuehl and Bobby Shriver.
I agree with my Citywatch colleague Ken Alpern: Yes on props 1 and 2, No on 45, 46 and 47.
It so happens I have a class on Tuesday night, so my attention will be diverted to earning more credits towards my CPA license renewal. The subject is pension plans – as most of you know, my favorite topic.
