Prop A Discussion on Politically Speaking

Early results show voters support the idea of the City of San Diego being prohibited from using union-friendly Project Labor Agreements (PLAs).

The ballot measure Prop A has 60 percent of the vote with a small number of precincts reporting.

The proposition requires 50 percent plus one votes to pass.

“These numbers are definitely the low end of what we’re anticipating,” said Eric Christen with the Yes on Prop A Campaign. 

“With so much noise going on in this election, I’m not surprised,” said Lorena Gonzalez, CEO of San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council.

When asked her opinion on the returns for both Prop A and Prop B, Gonzalez said it's tough for the workers' voice to be heard.

She said San Diegans are too smart to support Prop A but said the labor stance was outspent 7 to 1 by corporate interests.

“When we need to, we’ll exercise our legal options,” Gonzalez said.
