Everyday that goes by means it's getting closer to election day and for the first time, a Proposition A e-mail came into our e-mail inbox. Prop A is a City of Los Angeles measure that if voted on by two-thirds of the people, the city will add a $36/year special tax on each real property parcel for programs that address gang violence (to read through the language, Smart Voter has it). Tomorrow afternoon, LAPD Chief William Bratton, Sheriff Lee Baca and LAFD Chief Douglas Barry are all scheduled to publicly endorse the measure at City Hall.
