Still unsure about how you’re going to vote on Prop 25? It should be an easy NO, but if you need help in deciding, see what others are saying about the issue.
Below, we have put together quotes from professional individuals in the industry who have come forward to voice why voting NO on Prop 25 is imperative.
“Prop 25 ignores crime victims’ pleas for justice. There are already tens of thousands of outstanding warrants for defendants who have failed to fulfill their legal obligations, and Prop 25 eliminates the most effective and efficient tool we have to ensure they show up to court and offer justice to victims.”
– Susan Fisher, Retired Commissioner, Board of Parole Hearings, former Governor’s Crime Victims Advocate
“Prop 25 creates a new bureaucracy that will cause more delays in the justice system, and poor and minority defendants will be the ones who suffer. People accused of a crime could remain locked up indefinitely, making it more likely for them to lose their jobs and be unable to take care of their families. Voters must reject Prop 25.”
– Victoria Baca, Mayor of Term, City of Moreno Valley
“Prop 25 will endanger public safety and makes it harder for police and sheriff’s departments to do our jobs.”
– Chad Bianco, Riverside County Sheriff

A History on Prop 25
Prop 25 is a California ballot proposition that will appear on the ballot for the general election on November 3, 2020.
Until 2019, California used a cash bail system, allowing for the release of criminal suspects who were awaiting an upcoming trial. This method helped to ensure the accused would return for their appointed court date.
On August 28, 2018, then governor of California, Jerry Brown, signed SB10, ultimately ending the previous use of cash bail, instead evoking a risk assessment method. This new method relies on a computer algorithm managed by government bureaucrats to decide who can and who can’t get out of jail while waiting for their court date.
To vote “yes” on Prop 25 would keep SB10 in place, while a “no” vote would repeal it.
