I agree that the language was misleading. The ballot language is ALWAYS misleading. I’ve always been an informed voter, however less so in local elections in the past… and the language has always been misleading. Propositions are written in lawyerly language, and unless a voter is incredibly informed, they will often skip the vote or vote based on wrong information or how much the proposition costs. We need to simplify the language.
