League of Women Voters Endorses Home Rule

The League of Women Voters, well-known promoters of good government, endorsed Prop 1 yesterday. In a letter to the campaign, the League cited increased checks and balances and responsiveness to the people as reasons for their endorsement.

The League also cited these benefits of Home Rule:

  1. Allow counties the authority to determine organization, procedures and powers of their own government;
  2. Deliver a maximum of freedom for control by either the state legislature or state administrative offices;
  3. Allow true local government with freedom of choice in establishing a form of county government;
  4. Provide the county the power to meet the needs of their citizens; and
  5. Prevent legislative interference in matters relating only to county affairs.
