Oakland and California November 2020 Voter Guide

Ballot analysis and recommendations

Voter Guide

The goal of the SPUR Voter Guide is to offer objective analysis and advise voters on which measures will deliver real solutions. 

For Oakland local propositions, SPUR’s Policy Advisory Board heard arguments from different sides of the issues, debated the measures’ merits and provided recommendations to our Oakland Board of Directors. The board then voted, with a 60 percent vote required for SPUR to make a recommendation.

For California state propositions, a sub-committee of the SPUR Executive Board heard arguments from different sides of the issues, debated the merits of state measures and provided recommendations to the SPUR Executive Board. The Executive Board then voted, with a 60 percent vote required for SPUR to make a recommendation.

Oakland Policy Advisory Board: Dahlia Chazan, Deborah Boyer, Elisse Douglass, Lynette Dias, Alexis Pelosi, Gloria Bruce
