Three-Candidate Pledge

By Cat Woods

Candidate for Member of the State Assembly; District 6

This information is provided by the candidate
Pledge by myself (Green Party candidate), Richard Olmstead (Libertarian candidate in the 6th District race) and Michael Hartnett (Republican candidate in the race) on reforms we will enact, if elected.
We have signed a joint pledge, as candidates, to do the following if elected:

1. re-introduce a bill to allow all California counties and cities to use ranked voting in their local elections, if they so choose. (similar to SB596)

2. support or re-introduce the bill to keep the California National Guard in California (Assembly Joint Resolution 36) and do everything possible to withdraw California support from the invasion of Iraq and military intervention in any other countries not actively invading or bombing the U.S.

3. support real campaign finance reform that does not discriminate against independent and third-party candidates.

4. introduce a bill to terminate tax-payer funded nuclear weapons research by the University of California, specifically at Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Labs, and direct the university to instead invest its resources toward real national security in the form of energy independence by researching technology and implementation of clean, sustainable energy sources.

-Cat Woods, Green Party
-Richard Olmstead, Libertarian Party
-Michael Hartnett, Republican Party

Will the Democratic Party candidate (Jared Huffman) make the same pledge?
