Students succeed despite hard times

Propositions on June ballot draw mixed reviews

The Union Democrat has already endorsed Proposition 14, which calls for open primary elections. The paper has also urged a no vote on the PG&E-backed Proposition 16, which would require a two-thirds’ vote before any local government can enter the power business or expand its existing service.
