the NKD website has pretty fair pros/cons for each proposal: http://www.newkingsdemocrats.com/2018_ballot_proposals

feeling a little undecided right now but i guess i'm leaning towards yes on all 3

Yeah the New York Times editorial board is made up of the exact kind of people who sit on community boards for years and stop anything good getting done in this city because of their precious fucking parking spaces. Yes on all 3.

And another big plus on 2 if you're on the fence about an unelected commission is that it will provide language interpreters by 2020 at all polling locations citywide, which is the kind of thing New York should have had forever.

i'm guessing a lot of you already know this but a friend showed me this text from a WPF volunteer today:

Hi! This is Selvin, a volunteer with Working Families Party, NY's progressive party fighting for medicare for all, a green economy and to get money out of politics. Voting for Dems on the WFP line helps build a progressive NY. On Tues, will you vote on the WFP line from Gov Cuomo all the way across?

Not entirely sold on voting 'yes' on 2. Especially since a plurality of members are chosen by the mayor and the rest by the borough presidents and city council speaker

the most politically active person I know (I think you might know him know him del, or at least seen you interact with him on twitter) is also a no, and I trust him more than anyone else when it comes to new york politics

yeah, my wife is yes on 1 and 3 and no on 2. seems like her gripe is it creates a bunch of redundancy in an extra bureaucratic layer? plus appointments. also says the language thing is something that's already under way here and that's the only thing she really supports

im looking at her notes in our voting guide and there's a lot of "NO" and "THIS ALREADY EXISTS"

fwiw she's a social worker in queens that does a lot of community engagement stuff

the breslin if you dont mind supporting a woman who turned a blind eye to repeated sexual harassment from her business partner.

cant really think of midtown breakfast...maybe normas in le parker meridian?


Midtown part makes this much harder, but Sarabeth's is a tasty mini-chain for large unhealthy breakfasts.

voting yes on all 3 as well. weird that I've not seen any debate about them, really.

the big thing about #2 is that participatory budgeting should absolutely be citywide. it's wild that people don't know about it!

im also a yes on 2 solely because of participatory budgeting. ive got mixed feelings about how it exists now, but it's got potential and im interested in seeing how it evolves.

at best its an expansion of the democratic process as communities collectively decide what to do with funds allocated to them by the city, at worst a hollow display of democracy since there isn't any substantial amount of funding and most of the projects people can decide to invest in are pretty limited. i've got my concerns with how hampered it is in actually empowering people, but it's at least giving folks an idea that they could actually have a direct say in what our government invests in. and that is a pretty chill idea to have floating around!

participatory budgeting and language interpreters at polling sites are both very good things, but I'm not sure why those things need to be tied to the creation of a new commission that doesn't answer to voters

edit: i guess participatory budgeting isn't that good? seems to have to do with lack of turnout / meaningful funding? anyway still not convinced on 2

i could very easily just be blinded by my love of pb. i honestly don't really have too much of an opinion on the other parts of the proposal.

Other than the ballot proposals above (I'm YES/NO/YES) and no straight-ticket voting in NY yeah voting for all the democrats is a good call. If you're asking whether you have to, say, unfold your massive ballot and tear it into two pieces in order for it to be counted, unfortunately yes:
