Sombs: Vote no on Proposition 98, yes on Proposition 99

Help preserve our way of life – vote no on Proposition 98 and yes on Proposition 99.

Proposition 98 is the hidden agenda proposition and Proposition 99 is the true homeowner protection proposition.

Proposition 98 and Proposition 99 may seem confusing and you may say it doesn't make any difference to me. Well, the big money barons meant it to be confusing when they drafted Proposition 98. Like the villain in the old melodramas it looks just fine at first glance. But take another looksee and it shows its true meaning.

It's not really about eminent domain it's about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer with many of us finding ourselves out in the street. Yes, it makes a difference to all of us. Yes, it is about rent control but it is also about taking away zoning protections and endangering county governments with bankruptcy.

Proposition 99 was drafted to help take the sting out of Proposition 98 if it passed. Proposition 99 gives true homeowner protection in cases of eminent domain. It will help keep rents within reason. Proposition 99 keeps government from using eminent domain to take a home to transfer to a private developer.
