Not that we need more evidence of the importance of passing Prop. 30, but there’s plenty available. The San Francisco Chronicle reported this week that the library/media center at James Logan High School in Union City has been closed, leaving some 4,000 students without access to aisles of books and computers. We have to keep more cuts like this from happening to our schools, and the way to do that is by passing Prop. 30.
Prop. 30 is the only funding initiative on the ballot that will assist higher education. Making a plea for the proposition in the North County Times this week was Riverside Community College instructor Fabian Biancardi who wrote, “My colleagues and I have full classes, full waiting lists and many pages of emails from students begging for entry. We admit as many as we’re legally allowed, and it’s devastating to be forced to turn the rest away.”

Last week we introduced you to Super PAC Billionaire, but did you know there’s a Super PAC App you can use to track the millions flowing into Super PACs? While watching a political TV ad, a user can hold up her phone to identify the commercial and receive objective third-party information. The Super PAC App allows the user to rate the ad, while understanding who and how much money are behind the ad, what claims the ad is making, and whether those claims are based on facts.
